Money

Additional Links

The Bible recognizes the possession and use of money as a legitimate part of life in human society. (Concerning the kinds of money in use in Bible times see COINS.) But the benefits that money brings are temporary, and those who become over-concerned with increasing their wealth eventually bring trouble upon themselves (Matthew 6:19-23; 1 Timothy 6:9-10; see WEALTH).

Poverty is not desirable either, and people should use their money to help those who are in need (Deuteronomy 15:7-10; James 2:15-16; see POOR). Christians have a responsibility to give their money generously, both as an offering to God and as a service to his work in the world (2 Corinthians 9:6-13; see GIVING).
