God knows we are creatures who have practical needs. 
He honors that need.

What does the scripture say about money?

There are 2,350 verses in The Scriptures about money. That's more than the verses about heaven and hell put together.

The Bible contains our basic instructions before leaving Earth. Every practical advice we need is written in the Scriptures. Money is not an exception.

What does this mean?

That God knows we are creatures who have earthly needs. When we're hungry, He knows we can't just pray for it to go away. We need to fill our stomach with food.

God doesn't ignore or shy away with the idea of money and wealth.

What does God want us to know about and put into practice when it comes to money?

Scriptures about Money

For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, 
have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 
-Timothy 6:10

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. 
-Proverbs 22:7

Go to the ant, sluggard; consider her ways and be wise; who having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provides her food in the summer and gathers her food in the harvest. 
-Proverbs 6:6-8

On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save
as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come. 
-1 Corinthians 16:2

You shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him. 
The wages of a hired man are not to remain with you all night until morning. 
-Leviticus 19:13 

(I wish our management is aware of this verse)

Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich
-Proverbs 10:4

Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it. 
-Proverbs 13:11

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” 
-Malachi 3:10

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat. 
-Proverbs 13:4

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way... Better is the little of the righteous than the abundance of many wicked. 
-Psalms 37:7,16

Now my advice to you is to use 'money', tainted as it is, to make yourselves friends, so that when it comes to an end, they may welcome you into the houses of eternity. 
The man who is faithful in the little things will be faithful in the big things. 
So that if you are not fit to be trusted to deal with the wicked wealth of this world, who will trust you with true riches
-Luke 16:9-11

So you see, money per se is not evil. It is the love of money that drives people to do selfish and evil deeds. Money is a tool and a good servant. But if you're not careful, money becomes a sadistic master.

Money has no brains. It can't think for itself. But you can. Don't let money govern your life and be your ruin.

Let these scriptures about money guide you to the path of prosperity. After all, Jesus came that you may have life, and may have it abundantly. (John 10:10)

  1. I have known a lot of times how Proverbs 13:11 worked - friends of friends, relatives, and neighbors who eventually made themselves impoverished because they didn't acquire their riches in the righteous way.

    I really really love this Lux! Thanks for collecting these verses. These are all wise advice and I'm not surprised because they're given by the Lord whose wisdom transcends everything on earth!
