Financial Scripture

Jesus said, "If you keep My commands, then you are truly my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:31-32).
The bible contains about 500 verses on prayer and a little less than 500 verses on faith, yet over 2,350 verses that address in very practical, specific ways how to earn, save, spend, invest and give money. Two-thirds of the parables deal with money. The Bible has more to say about money than heaven and hell combined, even more to say about money than salvation. The Bible has more to say about money than any other subject except love.
Biblical financial principles applied yesterday, they apply today, and they will apply tomorrow. His principles apply if you have a little or a lot, if you are single or married, if you are young or young-at-heart.
