Two Financial Tips From God

A number of Dave Ramsey’s financial recommendations are found in the Bible. Two of his top suggestions are …

Avoid Debt:

• Proverbs 22:7 The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

• Psalms 37:21 The wicked borrow and do not repay.

Do Not Be Wasteful With What You Have:

• Proverbs 25:16 Have you found honey? Eat only as much as you need, Lest you be filled with it and vomit.

• Proverbs 21:17 He who loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and oil will never be rich.

• Proverbs 18:9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

Gary Henry wrote “it is frugality that opens the door to generosity and makes it possible for us to give to other people.” Lao Tzu put it this way “Because of frugality, one is generous.” I would add to that – avoiding debt is also critical to being generous to others.
