The Bible has a lot to say about money and riches.
In fact, more is said in the New Testament about money than is said about Heaven and Hell combined. Money is not just natural; it’s very spiritual.
According to the Word of God, there is a right way to gain riches and a wrong way. God is not in the business of giving people “get-rich-quick” schemes. Proverbs 13:11 (NLT) says, “Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.”
However, if we gain riches God’s way, according to His wisdom and counsel, then the Bible says, “The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22 MEV).
God wants us to walk in prosperity because when we do, not only are we able to give and be a blessing to others, but we are also a testimony of the goodness of God!
The Take Away
The Bible has a lot to say about money. God has given us some very practical counsel regarding how to prosper and how to walk in His blessings. Read and meditate on Deuteronomy chapter 28, and also read and study the book of Proverbs. Let’s start thinking the way God thinks so we begin walking in everything He has for us!
