Financial Guidance from God

This week it seemed like several passages from Scripture were speaking directly to me about financial issues and what we trust in.

What does Ecclesiastes 10:19 mean when it says “…and money is the answer to everything”?

The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. Ecclesiastes 12:13

Sow sparingly, reap sparingly, sow generously, reap generously; you are made rich in every way so you can be generous, which results in thanks to God (2 Corinthians 9:6-11)

Isaiah 2:22 reminds us to stop trusting in man

2 Corinthians chapter 11 says to me that boasting in self is foolish

When I am weak, then I am strong because of Christ (2 Corinthians 12:10)

And finally, a great reminder from Proverbs 23:4-5; don’t pursue riches, show restraint, understand that riches are fleeting
