The Bible is filled with more than 2,000 scriptures about money, tithing, and possessions. That's twice as many verses in the Bible about money as about faith and prayer combined. There are more than 2,300 verses in the Bible that discuss wealth, possessions, greed, monetary mindset, satisfaction, investment, and more. The Bible is full of advice and instructions on how to manage our finances and, ultimately, how we can honor God with our money.
But understanding the true meaning of these scriptures about God's money can be a challenge. It's easy to get caught up in budgeting and miss out on some of God's most important scriptures on money. It may come as a surprise to many Christians that the Bible talks so much about money. In fact, there are more than 2300 verses about money, wealth, and possessions.
Jesus spoke of money in approximately 15% of his preaching and in 11 of the 39 parables. It was his topic that was most talked about. God loves us and doesn't want money to hurt us; instead he wants us to use it as a tool to bless our family, others and to finance the advancement of his kingdom. In 1973, Howard, a successful businessman, began studying the Bible and ranked all the Scriptures that talk about money and possessions in a single thematic index. This index can help us better understand the meaning behind God's scriptures on money.
It can provide insight into how we should use our finances to honor God and how we can use them to bless others. By studying these scriptures we can gain a better understanding of how God wants us to use our money and possessions.
