Featured Christian Finance Blogs: Favorite Bible Verses

by Tim on October 29, 2010

There are quite a few verses in the Bible about money and it’s difficult to pick one and call it my favorite – so I got a little help from a few Christian personal financial bloggers.

When I asked these eight bloggers which verse about money was their favorite, I figured that I’d have a few overlapping answers. Interestingly, each gave a different verse – which is pretty cool because all of these blogs are unique in their content and have a lot to offer you as a reader!

I’ll share the verse I picked for Faith and Finance at the end…but first take a look at the featured blogs and their favorite verses:

Bible Money Matters

1 Timothy 6:17
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Philippians 4:12
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

KNS Financial

Matthew 25:23
His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Romans 13:8
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.

So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.

1 John 3:17
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?

Redeeming Riches

Acts 20:35
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’

Sound Mind Investing

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. (Such a great verse when talking about investments!)

Faith and Finance

twitter – @FaithFinance

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

I hope you take the time to check out each of these blogs and follow what they’re sharing. As I made this list, I couldn’t believe how well the principles of each verse matched up the overall messages on each respective blog.

A big thanks to these bloggers for sharing your favorite verses with us! I know I was excited to share the verse that I want for Faith and Finance to model. Be sure to leave a comment with your favorite scripture verse.

Hey Tim, this is a great list of scriptures and writers!

I also can’t believe that we didn’t overlap! I guess that just shows how rich God’s word really is!

Thanks for putting this together!

All great scriptures. My favorite is Proverbs 21:5 “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.” I believe it is critical to use all the knowledge we can get our hands on to make all the financial decisions that face us throughout life. And if we do that keeping in mind all of the scriptures you have listed here (among others), we will have abundance. Thanks for the insights, and I hope to be part of this illustrious group someday.
