7 Bible Verses About How to Become Wealthy

How to Become WealthyWhy Study Bible Verses About Wealth and Prosperity?

Money and wealth are important to God. Since the earth is His and all it contains, it is only natural that we look to Him for tips and tricks on how to become wealthy.  God has provided many Bible verses about wealth and prosperity throughout Scripture. Some of these passages reveal whom God blessed with riches.

God Blessed the Line of David with Wealth

King David was a man after God’s own heart and exceedingly rich. In David’s later years, he gave 3,000 talents of gold and 7,000 talents of silver out of his treasury to help build a temple to God. Today, one talent of gold is worth over one million dollars. Multiply that by 3,000, and you will see King David was exceedingly prosperous. However, his son would become even wealthier.

During Solomon’s reign, the Bible reports that besides his inherited wealth and other income, Solomon had an annual income of 666 talents of gold. Plus, he made silver so abundant that it became as common as rocks.

Would you like to share in Solomon’s wealth? We have good news: There are Bible verses about wealth and prosperity that supply wisdom on how to become wealthy.

7 Bible Principles that Teach You How to Become Wealthy

1. Demonstrate Humility – Proverbs 22:4: Humility and the fear of the Lord brings riches, honor, and life. 

When learning how to be wealthy, humility will take you a long way. Part of humility is having a teachable spirit. “Know it alls” are not open to new ways to invest and grow wealth. Keep your heart humble so that you can have your best chance at wealth.

2. Fear the Lord – Proverbs 9:10: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Above, Proverbs 22:4 joined humility and the fear of the Lord as working together to bring riches, honor, and life. Here in Proverbs 9:10, we learn that the fear of the Lord is also the foundation of wisdom and knowledge, both which are necessary to obtain enduring wealth.

3. Plan Diligently – Proverbs 21:5: The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. 

If you desire wealth, you must plan diligently. Diligent planning includes study, seeking advisors, and plotting a course of action.

4. Seek Blessing – Proverbs 10:22: It is the blessing of the Lord that makes rich, and He adds no sorrow to it.

Riches are a blessing from God. Seek His favor daily through prayer and devotion. When you earn your fortune this way, you will not experience the sorrow, hardships, and loneliness that plague some wealthy people.

5. Rest Regularly – Psalm 127:2: It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in His sleep.

Achieving wealth through overworking the body, lack of sleep, and stress is not healthy. When God blesses His children with wealth, he also wants to bless them with peace and rest.

6. Give Generously – Proverbs 3:9-10: Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your harvest; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.

The Bible admonishes us often to give back to God and help those in need. When God blesses, He expects us to bless Him in return. When we give freely, it frees Him up to bless us more abundantly.

7. Value Integrity – Hebrews 13:5: Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”

When you love money more than God, it affects your integrity. Poor integrity will not provide enduring wealth and riches. In all your business dealings, put God before the money. When you operate with integrity, you will be satisfied with what God provides and prepared to receive more. 

Practice these principles and Bible verses about wealth and prosperity, and you will be well on your way to riches, honor, and life.
