The Bible Encourages the Teaching of Stewardship

Stewardship Is About Way More Than the Tithe

Matthew 28:20, "...teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you."

Luke 3:11-14, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” “Don’t collect any more than you are required to.” “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely—be content with your pay.”

Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

God's Way of Managing Money

Proverbs 21:20, “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.”

Proverbs 13:22, “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children”

Proverbs 3:9–10. “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.”

How Often is Money Mentioned in the Bible?

Did you know that there are roughly 2,350 verses concerning money in the Bible? That's almost twice as many as verses about faith and prayer combined. Jesus had a lot to say about money:

  • Nearly 15% of everything Jesus spoke about related to money and possessions
  • 16 out of his 38 parables dealt with the topic of money
  • The only subject Jesus taught more about than money was the Kingdom of God
Why? Because the Scriptures are very clear about an inherent connection between a person's spiritual life, attitudes, and actions concerning money and possessions.
