The Proverbs have a great deal to say about money and related topics such as giving, poverty, righteousness and wisdom. The purpose of this study is to narrowly focus upon the issue of money and wealth in order to draw out, from the vast material in Proverbs, principles to help us in maintaining a Biblical lifestyle in relation to money.
Greed for money can lead to family problems (15:27).
Do not charge exorbitant interest; justice will prevail (28:8).
Ask God for the proper amount of money (30:8).
Lesson 11: Search your heart before God that you might be aware of any greed(cf. Ephesians 5:3).
Remember that a biblical view of money begins by a commitment to honoring God first with our money (I). Then we must keep in mind that wisdom, righteousness and the fear of God are more important than money (II-IV) and will enable us to perform the first principle more adequately, as well as the others (V-XI).
