The Bible, God and Money — God owns everything

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it (Psalm 24:1).

To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it (Deuteronomy 10:14).

For every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10).

The world is mine, and all that is in it (Psalm 50:12).

"The silver is mine and the gold is mine,” declares the LORD Almighty (Haggai 2:8).

Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint (Proverbs 23:4).

A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished (Proverbs 28:20)

No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money (Matthew 6:24).

People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs (1 Timothy 6:9-10).

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:1-3).

The Bible, God and Money — Be aware of the dangers of wealth

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God (Mark 10:25).

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days (James 5:1-33).

Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless (Ecclesiastes 5:10).

Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf (Proverbs 11:28).

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).

The Bible, God and Money — Be wise if you are wealthy

A man who has riches without understanding is like the beasts that perish (Psalm 49:20).

The Bible, God and Money — Give generously

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25).

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:11).

One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty (Proverbs 11:24).

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously (2 Corinthians 9:6).

The Bible, God and Money — Learn contentment

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:11-13).

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have (Hebrews 13:5).

The Bible, God and Money — Do not borrow

He will lend to you … He will be the head, but you will be the tail (Deuteronomy 28:44).

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

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another (Romans 13:8).

The Bible, God and Money — More verses

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own? (Luke 16:11-12).

He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment (Proverbs 12:11).
