Everything we have we have been given by Him, even the abilities we use to create wealth. I like this one that you listed about contentment: Philippians Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. Well done.. The bible verses first brought me to bible money matters a few years ago. This collection will help me in many ways…Thank you and congrats on your blogging.
God has always taken care of me…. This collection will help me focus on what is important…well done. Matthew is always y favorite verse when it comes to money discussion. The message is clear, we need to be spiritualist rather than materialist. Most people who achieve financial freedom are actually those who are not servants of money, but servants of God. Jesus sure knew money would be HIS biggest competitor. Thanks for this list and keep fighting the good fight!
The bible has a vast amount of info and i truly wish people just took the time to look into it. That must have taken you quite a while to compile.

5 Bible verses about money YOU should know [FREE PDF]
Thank you so much for taking the time to collect such timely and comprehensive biblical reference list about money. I was able to quickly find an appropriate verse to share with someone who is having a difficult time managing money.
This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared? I seem to be sliding backwards no matter how hard I try to move ahead as a single woman no dependents with just an average salary. This sudden increase in debt has caused great aggravation and feelings of defeat yes, I have went to the Word and prayed..
Hope you will read and readers and help stand in agreement with my mental strength. Some of these verses about worry helped me a lot. These encouraging bible verses also gave me a motivation when I lacked it. I love Jesus.
I faced and am still facing lot of problems in life, from childhood I have seen lot of violence in my house. My dad is an extreme alcoholic and has been verbally, as well as physically, abusive to my mom — my sis and myself — and his own parents as well. My dad thinks of himself as a very holy and righteous man.
He left the Catholic church on the pretext that it is not of God. He is always judgmental about people and believes that we all will go to hell except him. He talks about right and wrong but has never done anything right. He cheated my fiance for money which I never thought my father would have ever done. My father had promised me he will do the best for us, but when money came his colors changed.
My father has been cheated in the past by many people with money and so I thought, he will never do such a thing. Its more like stabbing a person quietly. When I confronted my father and told him what he is doing is wrong, and that he is taking advantage of a simple man, my father argues and tells me even an outsider would do so, and there is nothing wrong in it. Yes I have to pay for my fathers sins and I will do that once I have enough money to pay back. But I am still unable to understand that someone can talk about Christ and yet do so much bad.
It just feels like satan is operating via him to disgrace our lord. I needed to post this so that people, if ever you lose faith in Christ due to anyone or any reason, you should know that the world is filled with evil. Evil, if not judged today, it will be judged someday.
Bible Verses About Money: 9 Practical Principles You Need to Know
Trust me I have faced really bad times and still am facing each day. I have had so many failures in life even after hard work and sometimes have been so disheartened because nothing went right. And when Christ being God himself could suffer and take so much pain for us, I think we should at least trust him and believe he will give us the strength.
When you are suffering just thank God cause he felt you can handle it. I just have one belief Jesus is Christ and try your best to follow the bible. He loves each of us and will keep giving us chances till we are alive even if we are bad he will. I pray my father changes and realizes what wrong he has done before its too late.
Please pray for him that he changes and also for me and my family and every person facing such situations so that God gives us all strength to keep our faith in him. And pray for every person who has turned their back to the Lord. The devil wants to take as many souls as he can. But we have to fight him for our Lord. Praise the Lord Almighty Jesus Christ. The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. Proverbs We can run to Him in prayer, and he will be there to comfort us.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm I read your post and it was very poignant. You have been through a lot and I will continue to pray for you and your family. Life is hard, but GOD is good. We just have to trust in Him and set the example to follow in His footprints daily.
Again, I pray for peace in your family, especially your father. Philippines Hang in there and never cease to pray. There are a lot of others in this world that need Jesus. We are all sinners and in need of Him. Prayers from here to you, my friend!!! Thank you for the time you took to put these verses together. I thought these other verses would be great for them to read on their own to see what else the Bible has to say about money.
I was wondering why the Bible says that we need only food and raiment clothes as far as physical needs to be content. Obviously we need water too, and maybe medical help, and what about housing? All the context I read so far of the many raiment verses, easily is clothing in meaning. I know people need far less housing than they prefer to live in, but no housing is necessary for contentment? Or does it mean no home of our own, that sharing with other homeowners is fine, no reason to be unhappy, if the person is happy to share their home with us?
I heard of one woman who was divorcing her husband to save her financial situation….
Worshiping money more than the God who tells us that divorce is adultery. I am willing now to be homeless or live in whatever home my husband will provide. What freedom, not caring about lifestyle enough to complain anymore. Often in the Bible, giving, etc. Clearly, tithing is OT. Even Billy Graham believes that. Please there is a place in the bible that talks about money. Can you help me? I have enjoyed this web page on Bible verses about money.
I was looking for some information for an essay in Theology When I start reading the different verses I did not want to stop. My heart and pray go out to the young lady with the situation with her father abusive and taking money that do not belong to him. In spite of, she is keeping the faith. I know she is a woman that love and fear God. When God is with us, who can be against us. I have the website in writing and I will continue to read it daily. Thanks, and may God forever bless you. Several years ago I almost died in a hospital in Hawaii after living overseas in the Marshall islands.
I woke up in the hospital in late March and was changed not just physically but spiritually. I know that God is real. He is not dead or made up but real. My sister, Debbie called me and asked me to come to Idaho where she would be my attendant. I agreed and was medevac May 25, and sent to a rehab facility here in Idaho where I continued to learn how to walk.
He was one and I saw how he dragged himself off the floor and got on his feet and took his first steps. He made walking fun. I lost my job and had to recover. We all moved into a apartment and I kept improving.

The following year our mother died and we flew to Mobile, AL and found a mess. We had problems with the insurance policy that mom had with the US government. I contacted the bank which was a joke and have since found out that they have a thief working for them but no one seems to give a damn.
The 3 women involved in the theft plus at the bank did not give a damn but the great part was that I visited the church where my mother went to for service and the preacher spoke to the congregation about reading the Bible everyday, a chapter of the Old Testament, a chapter of the New Testament and a chapter of Psalms. That made me want to go back to the hotel and read the first chapters of the Bible. I also added a chapter of Proverbs each day. I have gotten so much out of it. I am now ready to read tomorrow if the good Lord lets me the first chapter of Nahum.
This is gotten me so interested in ancient history of the Bible. I want to know if there are any capital cities or other cities mentioned in the Bible that are still in existence. I have also started reading Catherine Ponder books that I have been able to read for free on my kindle from Amazon. I also realize that God is my source not people are things and have been writing down verses in the Bible and in other books that speak to me in other books in notebooks.
