When it comes to managing the finances of your home, God has given us biblical money principles that bring timeless wisdom which guides us towards financial stability and good success. By following these principles, we will learn how to save wisely, spend responsibly, and build wealth for the future.

As a married couple my husband and I have had to make many financial mistakes in order to learn how God really wants us to use and steward the financial wealth and resources He has blessed us with. The best place to start is in the Bible. God has literally put EVERYTHING in the Word needed for our success in this life.


What are Biblical Money Principles?

  • Stewardship:

    • Genesis 1:28 - God gave humans dominion over the earth, implying responsibility to manage resources wisely.
    • 1 Peter 4:10 - Use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God's grace.
  • Work Ethic:

    • Proverbs 12:11 - Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense.
    • 2 Thessalonians 3:10 - The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.
  • Avoid Debt:

    • Proverbs 22:7 - The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.
    • Romans 13:8 - "Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another.
  • *Be responsible in your spending and live withing your means because debt is very dangerous.
  • Save and Invest:

    • Proverbs 21:20 - The wise store up choice food and olive oil, but fools gulp theirs down.
    • Ecclesiastes 11:2 - Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.

    • 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 - Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
  • Contentment:

    • 1 Timothy 6:6-10 - But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
    • Hebrews 13:5 - Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have.
  • Honesty:

    • Proverbs 13:11 - Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
    • Luke 16:10 - Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
  • *While biblical money principles emphasize the importance of saving and responsible spending, they also encourage individuals to work diligently and invest wisely in order to build wealth. Hard work and patience in achieving financial success.
  • Planning:

    • Proverbs 21:5 - The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
    • Luke 14:28 - Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?
  • Trust in God:

    • Matthew 6:31-33 - So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
    • Philippians 4:19 - And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
  • *It's Gods good pleasure to bless His own which is written in many areas of the Bible. Poverty and lack are not your portion as a children of The Most High God.
