#64 - 3 Bible Verses About Money
The overlap of faith and finance is my favorite topic to learn or think about. Thankfully, there are literally hundreds of verses in the Bible related to money. Currently, I am reading through Luke and wanted to highlight three verses:
Luke 12:15 - “Then he said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” This is active statement (Watch out!). Evaluate your life. Are you allowing greed to take hold?
Luke 12:29-31 - “And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.” We are to seek first God’s kingdom and trust for him to provide.
Luke 12:34 - “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Our hearts tend to follow where our treasure is. Place your treasure in heaven.
Here is the link to Luke 12 so you can see the context surrounding the verses. I believe we need to evaluate our heart and life on an ongoing basis. Am I deriving my sense of security or self-worth from my possessions? How do my actions related to money support what I believe?
