There are quite a few verses in the Bible about money and it’s difficult to pick one and call it my favorite – so I got a little help from a few Christian personal financial bloggers.
When I asked these eight bloggers which verse about money was their favorite, I figured that I’d have a few overlapping answers. Interestingly, each gave a different verse – which is pretty cool because all of these blogs are unique in their content and have a lot to offer you as a reader!
I’ll share the verse I picked for Faith and Finance at the end…but first take a look at the featured blogs and their favorite verses:

His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. (Such a great verse when talking about investments!)
twitter – @FaithFinance
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
I hope you take the time to check out each of these blogs and follow what they’re sharing. As I made this list, I couldn’t believe how well the principles of each verse matched up the overall messages on each respective blog.
A big thanks to these bloggers for sharing your favorite verses with us! I know I was excited to share the verse that I want for Faith and Finance to model. Be sure to leave a comment with your favorite scripture verse.
