6 Biblical Principles About Money & Possessions

This short devotion share 6 Biblical Principles for handling money and possessions as God desires.

The Bible contains hundreds of references about money and possessions. Here are 6 basic principles:

💲 1. Sacrifice Not Size: When we give, the amount is not as important as the sacrifice (Mark 12:41-44).

💲 2. Little Things Matter: The way we handle small amounts of money is a reflection of how we'll handle larger responsibilities (Luke 16:10).

💲 3. Contentment is Key: With Christ's help, we can be content in wealth or poverty (Philippians 4:11-13).

💲 4. Temptation & Destruction: Money is a powerful temptation, with great power to destroy our faith and life purposes (1 Timothy 6:7-10).

💲 5. Reap What You Sow: Stinginess is rewarded with stinginess, generosity with generosity. God cares about the heart of the giver more than the gift (2 Corinthians 9:6-8).

💲 6. Faith = Help: Those with genuine faith in Christ will help those in need (James 2:14-17). 

These 6 principles help us view our money and possessions as God intended.
