Some Bible verses about money 1

Money doesn't change you. Money will only make you more of what you already are."
T. Harv Eker

The bible is full of parables that talk about the wealth of people, and how the most valuable people for our Lord are the people with more spiritual wealth, with more nobility, more humble, uprooted to the material. Here are some verses.

Do not love money; be content with what you have, for God has said, "I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5

This text from Hebrews can be somewhat controversial, if what little we had was lost, for some reason. Many times we sacrifice our home, our family gatherings, our health, for love to money, to be greedy, to have more, to have the best car, the best cell phone, the best toy for our children, in short, to have the best car, the best cell phone, the best toy for our children, in short, to have the best car, the best cell phone, the best toy for our children. greed clouds our thoughts, throwing away everything that is really important. This warning is very appreciable in these times we live in, selfishness, greed, and the inordinate desire to have more have influenced our society in an alarming way, to the point of abandoning the ways of the Lord.

Sometimes we immerse ourselves in work in order to accumulate enough money to be able to stop working someday. But it's not like that, if your work doesn't satisfy you, you'll end up bitter. It is not worth mortgaging your life for money. It is not bad to make money, nor to enjoy it; as long as we keep ourselves free from the love of money. To be able to trust in the presence of God, this is the source that is there for us, we must recognize with humility that it is for the love of money. God's grace that we have all that we have, whether it is much or little. God in his infinite goodness grants us what we need to live. Everything comes from God, he created it and he is its owner. He gives and he takes away according to his will, and to him we must always give the things we need. thank youfor allowing us to live another day.

What is easily earned is easily spent; save little by little, and one day you will be rich.

Proverb 13:11

People who are in a rush to achieve success and wealth often resort to dishonest means, such as deceit, lies, scams, among others, to deceive the innocent and naive. These people may be successful for a while, but their fame or wealth will be ephemeral.

If you are a diligent person in your work, honest, you are kind to your fellow man and you understand that nothing in life is easy, that you need to strive and focus to obtain success either professionally and/or economically; then the Lord your God will guide you to use all our resources according to His will and live a life that glorifies Him in everything. It is not sin what is sinful is to put our faith in money, instead of saving it. trust in God to provide for all our needs.

Let us be diligent in both work and savings. Let us manage our finances with prudence and wisdom, saving a portion for the future, and we should also save in anticipation of future needs. We can save, for example, for our children's studies, retirement, or to be able to face unforeseen events that sooner or later will arrive.

for we have brought nothing into this world, and no doubt we shall be able to take nothing out. Therefore, since we have food and shelter, let us be content with this. For they that would be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition: for the love of money is the root of all evils; which while some coveted after, they have erred from faithand were pierced with many sorrows.

Timothy 6:7-10

The Adagios of our grandparents are part of our cultural heritage, some time ago I heard the following one: "To be comfortable with poverty is to be rich. You are poor, not because you have little, but because you desire much."

These are popular sayings that have a lot of feeling in everyday life, when we come into this world we come naked, but we spend part of our lives stubbornly believing that whoever has more money "chooses better", these concepts spin in our heads, we get into the world of having more money to be able to decide, if you have it then we are someone in life, you are worth in society, and what's more, a good future awaits you. But in our long or short We have also seen men and women women who were eager to have this money and in the end took nothing.

The things that make a man rich in this world mean nothing in the world to come. The desire for riches is more dangerous than riches themselves, and it is not only the poor who desire to be rich, it is the rich who desire to be richer. This desire for riches tempts our heart away from eternal riches, and traps us in a snare from which few can escape by always dreaming of riches, and always setting our heart on them. The love of money is the engine that drives to do any evil on this earth. There is no sin that cannot be committed for the sake of money.

Those who live with the love of money will never be satisfied, which is why we must always to be grateful to God for what we have and always trust in the Word of God and in the experience of many.

Pay to each his due: if you owe taxes, pay taxes; if you owe taxes, pay taxes; to whom you owe respect, show respect; to whom you owe honor, give honor.

Romans 13:7

The bible is clear, it is a blessing to be debt free, but if for any situation we have incurred debts we must be responsible and cancel or pay them, in many cases the debt is a consequence of mismanaging what we have or greed. On the one hand is spending more than we earn instead of living within our means using wisely the resources that God has provided us.

Many times we are submerged in debt, because we want to fit into a society that accepts you according to the wealth you have, other times we fall into the error of giving our children prizes or benefits whose values are not within our reach, and just to please our children we fall into the game of pretending what we are not really.

It is written in the holy book that when Jesus visited the temple where there were tax collectors to Caesar, Jesus said to them: Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.. In this phrase Jesus makes it clear that we must be honest and sincere with ourselves. We should not pretend to be what we are not, getting into debt just to be accepted within a minority is not the wisest decision.

The most important thing is to keep in mind that when facing a debt we must have a detailed plan to pay it as soon as possible. In addition to always keep in mind that before taking on a debt we must have paid off present debts. Let's improve our economy in such a way that we can pay cash for our daily needs without having to resort to loans and debts.

Do not forget to do good and to share with others what you have, for these are the sacrifices that please God.

Hebrews 13:16

Generosity is one of the noblest and most gratifying values that allow us to please God and feel good as human beings, and being able to share the little or much we have, makes us feel useful and important for the service of our fellow men. To be able to give from the heart, and I am referring to that giving "what I have" which is very different from "what I have to spare", is really the way of expressing our love, our gratitude and praise to God.

In this world there are so many people in need, not only of deficiencies that are supplied economically speaking, there are also people so in need of affection or affection, that the only thing they have in their possession is money and material things; but they feel so isolated and empty, that no matter how many vanities they possess, they are unable to feel at peace and happy.

That is why we must be attentive to God's designs, many times those who require our help will never mention it or maybe we do not even know it, that is why we must be attentive and listen to our Father heavenly allowing the Holy Spirit guide us on how to help or share what we have with those around us.

God rewards us in many ways, and one of them is economic. Let us be more humble and value all the things that God gives us day by day. People need to understand that the truly rich are those who have a rich heart rather than a lot of money.
