Good morning! This is my first post on this blog. I think it is important to share some of the Biblical perspectives on money. In fact, there are many references to money and how we should handle it in the Bible. It's important for me to share some verses as we go along because I am a Christian, and I try to live my life with the Bible as my map. The first step to wealth is knowing God. When you have a personal relationship with God, you are always rich! You do not have to worry about daily needs being met. God always provides his children with what they need. What they need is the key in this statement. Many times what we want is alot different than what we need.
The plans of the diligent lead to profit, as surely as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 21:5 NIV
Many today live in haste, meaning we're always rushing, doing, going, and buying and most buying on impulse. We need to think about and plan our purchases. Alot of our money is spent with no thought. We are a nation of waste and greed. Slow down and rethink how you are spending. Is is purposeful and planned or is it based on impulse?
