Bible Proverbs About Money (Part 1).



The Book Of Proverbs gives us much practical instruction on the use of money, although it sometimes is instruction we would prefer not to hear. We often feel more comfortable continuing in our established habits than to learn how to use our money more wisely. Bible Proverbs include the following:

1. ASK GOD FOR WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND
GOOD JUDGMENT ABOUT MONEY AND WEALTH;

Proverbs 3:13-14 says Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”

Proverbs 8:10-11 (NIV) says Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.”

Proverbs 16:8 (NLT) says Better to have little, with godliness, than to be rich and dishonest.”

Proverbs 16:16 (NLT) says How much better to get wisdom than gold, and good judgment than silver!”

2. DON’T BE LAZY;

Proverbs 6:6-8 (NIV) says Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.”

Proverbs 6:10-11 (NIV) says A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest—and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.”

Proverbs 10:4 (NIV) says Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.”

Proverbs 12:11 (NIV) says Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense.”

3. DON’T BE GREEDY;

Proverbs 1:19 (NIV) says Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it.”

Proverbs 15:27 (NIV) says The greedy bring ruin to their households, but the one who hates bribes will live.”

Proverbs 28:22 (NIV) says The stingy are eager to get rich and are unaware that poverty awaits them.”

Proverbs 28:25 (NIV) says The greedy stir up conflict, but those who trust in the Lord will prosper.”

4. BE GENEROUS IN GIVING;

Proverbs 11:24-25 (NIV) says One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

Proverbs 19:17 (NIV) says Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done.”

Proverbs 22:9 (NIV) says The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.”

Proverbs 28:27 (NIV) says Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses.”

5. BE CAUTIOUS IN COUNTERSIGNING FOR ANOTHER;

Proverbs 11:15 (NIV) says “Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer, but whoever refuses to shake hands in pledge is safe.”

Proverbs 17:18 (NIV) says One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor.”

Proverbs 22:26-27 (NIV) says “Do not be one who shakes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.”

Proverbs 27:13 (NIV) says Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger; hold it in pledge if it is done for an outsider.”
