3 Key Points About Money

The Bible has lots to say about money. Here are 3 key points.

Is money evil according to the Bible? No, it is not. The Bible says "The love of money is the root of all evil." So it is loving money that is bad, not money itself.

Here are 3 ideas about money from a Christian perspective.

1) Don't let money be your God.

There is only one God, and we should love and honor and worship Him. If you make money your god; the one to whom you give your allegiance; this is wrong.

2) Money can be a blessing.

With money we can buy food, and clothing, and housing, and feed our families, and give to others. God decreed in the Book of Genesis in the Bible that we should work. So to work to get money, and to use the money for good things, is in line with God's plan. 

3) We should be generous.

The greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, and all our mind, and all our strength, and all our heart, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. God is the owner of everything, and every good and perfect gift comes from Him. We should be generous to God and to others and share so that we can express obedience to God and our love to God and to others.
