Sometimes the shortest verses pack the hardest punch. When it comes to verses about money, the Bible is no different. I’m always amazed with how clear the Bible is when it comes to stewardship and money management.
As a challenge, I decided to see if I could find one verse in the Bible to sum up one aspect of money. Whether you’re talking about stewardship, debt, investing, or savings, these single Bible verses really puts things into perspective.
If you’re looking to completely change the way you look at money, I would encourage you to memorize these verses.
