Some More Truths About Money

  • People who are generous givers are blessed.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:6 NKJ 6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

PROVERBS 11:25 NKJ 25 The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.

These verses reveal truth, but not all truth. So we cannot ignore all the rest of God's instruction and expect to prosper just because we give something.

  • God does not require everyone to give away everything they have.

But He does tell all those who are rich to be generous givers and not trust in their riches (1 Timothy 6:17-18).

Jesus told one specific man to give away everything, but did not require this of everyone. As Jesus' disciple, we must be willing to give our all (Luke 14:33). But Jesus does not require that be done before we can enter His kingdom.

  • God is pleased when His servants have an abundance.

PSALM 35:27 NKJ 27 Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, "Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant."

1 TIMOTHY 5:17 NLT 17 Elders who do their work well should be respected and paid well, especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching.

  • Jesus became poor to redeem humanity from the curse of poverty, so everyone could always have an abundant supply.

2 CORINTHIANS 8:9 NKJ 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

  • Because of all Jesus Christ has done for us, we should put Him first and live for Him.

2 CORINTHIANS 5:15 NKJ 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

PROVERBS 3:9-10 NKJ 9 Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; 10 So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.

SAY THIS: Thank You Lord for showing me what the Bible teaches about money.
