7 Money Lessons From The Bible The Bible is not only a source of inspiration, comfort, and a guide for living, but also a guide for how you should manage your money. Take a look at what financial lessons you can learn from the good book:

  1. Take control of debt. “The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender.” – Proverbs 22:7
  2. Keep track of your money, and think before you spend. “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?” – Luke 14:28
  3. Leave wealth for the next generation. “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children.”  –Proverbs 13:22
  4. Be honest in your financial dealings. “Dishonest money dwindles away,
    but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.” – Proverbs 13:11
  5. Seek financial counsel. “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they will succeed.” – Proverbs  15:22
  6. Use caution when co-signing a loan. “A man lacking judgment, strikes hand in pledge and puts up security for his neighbor.”  – Proverbs 17:18
  7. Pay your taxes. “Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”  – Romans 13:7
