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