A Biblical Guide To Your Family Finances
I am honored to write this article about Family Finances from a Biblical perspective. I have taken this channel because I have applied these Biblical principles to my family finance and it has worked and is still working.
God has admonished us that if we will hearken diligently unto his voice to observe and to do all his commandments which He has commanded us, then He will set us on high above all the nations of the earth.
THESE ARE THE REWARDS:
- Blessed you will be in the city
- Blessed you will be in the field
- Blessed will the fruit of your body be; meaning the fruit of your womb, which is your Children.
- Blessed will your basket be and your store
- Blessed you will be when you go out and when you come in.
[Reference Deuteronomy 28: 1-6]
The consequences of not providing for your Family can be very much uncomfortable to the eye. God has said that if We as parents do not provide for our own especially those of our own house, then we have denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. [1Timothy 5:8].
Absolutely nothing is wrong with being rich or wealthy, but we need to remember that it is God himself who has given us the power to get this wealth and He expects us to use it wisely.
Wisdom is a defence, money is also a defence, so combining these two together along with strong love and care for our family, we will never go off track with our finance.
We also need to remember that money answereth all things, BUT, the love of money is the root to all evil and I'm sure you have seen this evil around you from people who are greedy for money.
I hope this article will help you to spend your money wisely and for you to remember your Creator in the process.
