It's no surprise that money is a major topic in the Bible. 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 most talked about topic.
The Bible is full of advice and instructions on how to manage our finances and, ultimately, how we can honor God with our money. There are more than 2,300 verses in the Bible about money, covering topics such as wealth, possessions, greed, monetary mindset, satisfaction, investment, and more. But understanding the true meaning of these scriptures about God's money can be difficult. We may be so focused on budgeting that we miss out on some of God's most important scriptures on money.
To help us understand the meaning in more detail, Howard, a successful businessman, began studying the Bible and ranked all the Scriptures that talk about money and possessions in a single thematic index. It's comforting to know that, while the “love of money” is the root of evil, money itself doesn't have to be. Reading these other verses on their own can help us see what else the Bible says about money. For example, The Bible says that the LOVE for money is the root of all evil, this is true when you are rich or poor. By understanding these scriptures about money, we can learn how to manage our finances in a way that honors God.
We can also gain insight into how to use our resources to serve others and glorify God.
