The Bible & Money: Saving Money
To many of us, saving money is a fine idea, but often seems very unrealistic, especially when we're struggling to make ends meet every month. Yet it's wise, and it's biblical.
Save for a rainy day
Proverbs 30:25 (NIV) Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer.
Proverbs 13:11 (ESV) Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
Proverbs 13:22 (ESV) A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, but the sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.
