Didi you know that there are over, 2,350 verses in the Bible that talk about money? If you learn about the concepts, ideas and the proper way to use money, you have to live it and share it to your friends and family. In the Bible, almost half of the parables of Jesus talk about possessions and ownership. That shoes that is it to e given utmost importance.
When talking about wealth, it is not only talking about money. Many people love money more than people. This all depends on. Your concept of money, who owns it and what you can do with it. God wants to bless you abundantly. Genesis 1:28 says, “God blessed them and said to them,’be fruitful and increase in number. Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves in the ground.’” God’s plan from the very beginning is good, up until now. Hebrews 2:10 also says, “ Everything belongs to God and all things were created by His power.” You are only caretakers of God’s possessions. Who do you think God wants you to bless with the possessions that He entrusted to you?
Do you know your purpose? Do you know why you were born? Why you are married to your husband or wife? Why you are working? Why you are going to church where you are going to church? Mark Twain once said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Life is hard, but God will give you everything you need to get through it.
Proverbs 3:9 says, “Honor God with your money, the first fruits of your labor.” How can you do that? How can you become a good steward of money? If you know that everything is God’s, then it should be easy for you to return to Him what is rightfully His. Give Him your tithes and offerings, first and foremost. But what if you do not have any money in the first place? What will you need to manage? It is said that “everything in the world operates in the natural law which is seed foundation.” That
