Christian Financial Planning & The Bible
If you open up a concordance and just start reading everything the Bible says about money, you might walk away with the wrong impression. Scripture makes a lot of strong and pointed statements about wealth, and it would be easy to assume that money is a terrible necessity.
The truth is that money plays a valuable role in society. It allows the farmer or the carpenter to trade for goods and services without having to carry cows, produce, and lumber everywhere they go. The problem that Scripture recognizes and addresses is how money can usurp the place of God in our lives and be used to rule over and control others.
The more you look at how the Bible addresses money, the more you discover very practical advice about stewardship, devotion, and discipline.
