Usually when we hear about money in church it might only be during the offering message or when someone says “The love of money is the root of all evil.” Well the bible actually has so much more to say about the role money should play in our lives. Today we are going to look at 6 wonderful proverbs that speak exclusively about money and riches.

These are 6 of the best proverbs about money. I love the way she explained each verse!!! You should really read this!

Proverbs 16:8

Better is a little with righteousness, than great revenues with injustice.
As children of God, righteousness is more important to us than riches. The state of our morality should always come into consideration when we are pursuing ventures that may increase our wealth. Money is not going to bring us to heaven, so we should not put such a heavy significance on it. God will always provide what we need.

Proverbs 10:4

He becomes poor who works with a lazy hand, but the hand of the diligent brings wealth.
As we all know, laziness will never lead to your success. Anyone who wants to be financially secure must be a hard worker. When you work for what you want it has a much greater significance for you. Hard work doesn’t just mean physical work. You also have to examine your spiritual work ethic. Are you in the word of God enough for you to grow spiritually? Are you praying in such a way to strengthen your relationship with God?

Proverbs 14:23

In all hard work there is profit, but the talk of the lips leads only to poverty.
Talk is cheap! Get up! Get out! And get to work! The big dreams you have won’t happen if you sit idly waiting for the perfect opportunity. Allow those God given ideas to take root and begin to flourish. The dreams God gave you are going to be very difficult to attain, but they are possible. God would never give you an idea that you would not be able to finish with him by your side.

Proverbs 22:2

The rich and the poor have this in common: Yahweh is the maker of them all.
When God blesses you with an abundance of money and resources you have to remember that he is still Lord over your life. It may seem as though the rich and the poor are light years apart, but both types of people were created by God. They were both created for the same purpose, to be holy and worship God. But it is their decision whether or not they will walk in the purpose God has for them. When a Christian becomes rich, it is imperative that they remember where their prosperity came from. Otherwise, it will be so easy for them to loose who God desired them to be.

Proverbs 23:4

Don’t weary yourself to be rich. In your wisdom, show restraint.
Getting rich is not the point of living! You can’t tire yourself out for the sole purpose of making some extra cash. There is a fine line between being an hard worker and being a workaholic. Workaholics make no time for themselves and for their relationship with God. If you time with God is being strained because you are constantly working, then you need to re-evaluate your priorities. Is God really the Lord of your life, or are you just saying that to feel good about yourself? If God is Lord, then he will be Lord of your finances as well.

Proverbs 11:28

He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous shall flourish as the green leaf.
Dont trust in money because salvation does not come from money. Salvation is the gift God has given us for trusting and believing in him. When your security if found in money you will eventually fall. Money comes and goes, so if you loose all the money you have you have lost your identity. Do not allow for you bank account to determine your value. God created you perfectly and is so proud of you. But when you choose to have your identity rooted in material things you are basically spitting in God’s face and telling him that you don’t need him. When your identity and self worth are not rooted in Christ, you are breaking God’s heart.
