Money reVerse - The bible instructions on handling money
I am convinced that our guiding principles for handling money and possessions are already established in God's word. Some Wonder why this blog is named Money-Reverse? Good question. Let me explain...
General categories of these guiding principles are as follows:
- The Lord wants us to prosper
- Recognizing God as the true owner of everything
- Managing what is personally entrusted to us
- Working to earn a living
- Taking care of family
- Avoiding debt
- Giving to the building of God's kingdom
- Giving to the poor
- Being a generous giver
- Paying what we owe...on time
- Saving and investing
- Preparing for your demise
- Leaving a legacy
I'd like to encourage all readers to join me in examining the bible verses that support these instructions. I promise you that there have been no new verses inserted or appended to God's word to guide us in these days that could prove to be financially challenging. The prefix re means "again" when you pair it with the root word that immediately follows. Because it is likely that you've studied these scriptures before, I'd like for us to re-read these verses and look at them as if you're seeking God's instructions on managing money and possessions. Let's call this a re-verse exercise with the goal of reversing all non-biblical, unfavorable individual and global financial conditions.
Are you in? Let me know and stay tuned!
