Psalm 1:1-2: “Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
2 But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.”
Have you ever bought into one of those “get rich quick schemes?” What about an MLM opportunity? There is enough financial advice to fill volumes of hard-bound books and clutter your Kindle. New blog posts and articles are published daily (yes, I understand the irony since this is also a blog post) that promote the next big thing for making money and getting rich, a new “key to wealth,” if you will. However, we know that truth is old, and the Bible is the greatest source of wisdom regarding life, money, wealth, and possessions.
Biblical financial principles are the real deal.
Following God’s advice and counsel on money issues is the only way to true financial peace and freedom. Allow God’s Word to be your primary influence when making money decisions. The first financial principle the Bible teaches is to recognize that you are merely a manager or steward of God’s resources. You don’t “own” anything. How we manage someone else’s resources demonstrates what we think about them. If it’s God’s money, then shouldn’t it go to further His agenda and His Kingdom? The rest of God’s money principles flow from this proper mindset: live on less than you make, save, invest, don’t go into debt, pay fair wages, be generous, and celebrate life. Don’t know where to start? How about the book of Proverbs! Crown.org also has some excellent resources. Of course, you can always ask #CoachScott! I enjoy helping people align their spending with God’s priorities by planning how to steward what God’s given you.
