How To Handle Money God’s Way & Prosper

It’s no secret that the Bible teaches us to live our lives a little bit differently than the world does. And that’s especially true when it comes to money.

Practice contentment and don’t covet other people’s stuff, the Bible says (Hebrews 13:5, Exodus 20:17). 
But social media make you want the life you see around. You feel incomplete, so you get desperate to "meet up" and sink deep in sin.

Worship God above all else, and don’t worship idols, the Bible tells us (Exodus 20:3–4, Matthew 6:24). But people often make material possessions into gods without even realizing it — especially money.

But Proverbs 21:20 (NIV) explains the value in saving for a rainy day: “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.” And even beyond your own household, saving can create financial stability for future generations: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children” (Proverbs 13:22 NKJV).

It’s okay to have some fun with your money—as long as you budget for it, and as long as you pay yourself first by tucking some of your money into savings.

The world says: Spend all of your money on you. There’s no way you’ll have anything left over!
God says: Give 10% off the top and work toward being able to give even beyond that.

Giving isn’t a priority in the world, but it’s a priority to God.

The world says: Debt can be a tool to buy things you couldn’t otherwise have.
God says: Debt is bad.

Over the past several decades, debt has been marketed so heavily that many people feel like they can’t survive without it! In fact, eight in 10 Americans have debt, and seven in 10 believe it’s necessary. But debt has also forced people to delay or avoid expensive life events like marriage or kids, and it’s caused bankruptcy, divorce and all kinds of other messes.

Proverbs 22:7 actually says borrowing money enslaves you to the lender. And in Romans 13:8, Paul calls us to pay off all our debts so that the only thing we owe each other is love.

Seek prayers and the right means to have God's blessings so you don't end in hell committing sin because of money.
