For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also Matthew 6:21

The Bible is also very vocal about money and how we should use it. Perhaps the most famous example being 1 Timothy 6:10. “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” But does that mean money is bad? No, it just means that we need to be careful with what we do with it.

In 2 Corinthians 9:7-9 it says:


“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;”


We are told to give generously and joyfully. We shouldn’t give just because we feel like we have to, it should be a natural part of our worship. Those of us with money and the means to give should use it to help those who may need it more. That might even be something as simple as buying from local sellers rather than corporate giants or sticking some loose change in a coin collection box. Whatever we do with our money, we need to make sure that it is glorifying God in the process.
