Application of Wisdom

There is great wisdom in the Bible about money. There are 500 verses on faith, 500 on prayer, but over 2,000 on finances. I think there is much to learn. Spend a few minutes today reading through these proverbs on the subject. Pray how God wants you to apply them to your life.
Proverbs 10:4 - Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.
Proverbs 14:23All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
Proverbs 22:7The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Proverbs 23:4-5Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
Proverbs 30:8-9Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
Proverbs 3:9-10Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first-fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Proverbs 11:24-25 - One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Always apply God’s wisdom to your life. Amen?
