Some Thoughts about Money

Money

Some people have too much money, some not enough, and some none.

As Christians, we want to know God’s teaching on this.

I found this site that may be helpful.

I don’t invest at all, not here or anywhere except the Kingdom of God. But seek first God’s Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 [WEB]

If you open a concordance and just start reading everything the Bible says about money, you might walk away with the wrong impression. Scripture makes a lot of strong and pointed statements about wealth, and it would be easy to assume that money is a terrible necessity.

The truth is that money plays a valuable role in society. It allows the farmer or the carpenter to trade for goods and services without having to carry cows, produce, and lumber everywhere they go. The problem that Scripture recognizes, and addresses is how money can usurp the place of God in our lives and be used to rule over and control others.

The more you look at how the Bible addresses money, the more you discover very practical advice about stewardship, devotion, and discipline.
