What advice does the Bible offer about wealth and our attitude toward it? Is money really the root of all evil? Do you know what God thinks about bankruptucy? What does the Bible say about charitable contributions? How much should we give? Be sure to read this booklet to discover biblical answers to these important questions and more.
Money makes the world go round, or so it seems. Vast sums change hands every day in a global economy that affects virtually every man, woman and child on the planet.
Paradoxically, in this time of wealth and opportunity, millions of people struggle to survive economically. With consumer credit reaching gigantic proportions, many find themselves mired in debt. Anxiety about money matters takes an enormous toll on mental and physical health and general well-being.
What can you do about money problems? Where can you turn for simple, practical guidelines to help manage your personal finances? Libraries and bookstores provide readers with various principles and theories about money management. Books and videotapes assure readers they can be financially successful; others tell us we can become millionaires practically overnight.
But do you realize that sound principles are to be found in a book you probably already own? The Holy Bible offers proven financial advice and economic guidelines. The book of Proverbs alone reveals much about how to manage your personal finances. When we apply the principles we can find in Proverbs, they usually add up to economic success, financial stability and peace of mind.
Jesus Christ talked about freedom from economic want: "I am come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). Abundant life includes financial peace of mind. Throughout the Bible we can find specific financial principles and advice. When we properly apply them, they work for our benefit.
This booklet reviews many timeless economic principles from a biblical perspective. It shows us how to manage our financial affairs from a godly point of view. Turn the page to begin an important Bible-based study. You have nothing to lose and much to gain!
