    There is Mark 12:17 Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at him.

    Matthew 5:42

    Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

    Give me a tenner...

    A book by Steven Scott, "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived", is based on the principles spoken of in the book of Proverbs that teach the keys to wealth, happiness and life, in general. Parts of it relate to money management.

    I believe that there are quite a few depending on how literal you want to get.
    I don;t recall all of them at the I know there are a few about greed, money is the root of all evil? I do know one thing for sure, many churches preach that it is better to be poor and the meek shall inherit the earth but that's not so. There are many more passages which state that God wants you to prosper and be rich!

    I don't know what do you want to know, how to save it? how to view it? or how to spend wisely?

    Ecclesiates 7: 12 says "For wisdom is for a protection [the same as] money is for a protection; but the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom itself preserves alive its owner

    So money can be a protection and a source of temporary security.

    But it can be bad if "Your heart began to be haughty because of your wealth.” (Ezekiel 28:5)

    1 Timothy 6:10 says "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains."

    So balance view of money is proper. Without money we cannot survive but materialism and the pride associated with it is bad. Spend it wisely and you will like the ants that saved their food in winter time.
    PROVERBS 6:6-8
    “Go to the ant, you lazy one; see its ways and become wise. Although it has no commander, officer or ruler, it prepares its food even in the summer; it has gathered its food supplies even in the harvest.”

    I hope you have the answer

    I recall one about tithing 10% of your income to the church. I'm not sure if that was in the Bible or where exactly it came from though.

    If you google "Bible references on finances", you'd find several.  There are also several seminar presenters on the topic, Dave Ramsey being one of the real popular ones.

    Yes, there are. The Bible gives us principles for life, not specific instructions. If you're looking for verses, go to . From there you can find every verse that mentions money. My favorite scripture about money is from Matthew 6.

    "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

    Yes, radicalmovements here is a Biblical reference given by the great teacher.   Jesus advised us to make friends for ourselves by means of the unrighteous riches aka money.  Why did he label it unrighteous? Maybe because some are too engrossed in making money instead of storing up treasures in heaven where it won’t get stolen by thieves, or devalued. By the way, it’s the love of money not money itself that’s the root, of all sorts of injurious things.   

    Besides Jesus—as we should be also— is aware that these so-called unethical riches are going to fail.  So what am I going to do when the money fails?

    Make use of it now while it’s available, but while doing also seek first the kingdom so that all of these other things will be added to you. 
    (Luke 16:9-10)
