Notes:

The Bible has a “wealth” of information about finances and is “rich” in wisdom and truth regarding it.
Plan for your future. Revelation 22:1-12

Debt is bondage. Proverbs 22:7: The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.
Total consumer debt in the US is approximately 13 trillion dollars. Average debt by age group: under 35: $67,400; 35-44: $133,100; 45-54: $134,600; 55-64: $108,300; 65-74: $66,000; 75+: $34,500

A $100 purchase in the year 2000 costs you approximately $145 today (2018 statistic).

Are you in control of your finances, or is someone else?

A better way is shown in 1 Corinthians 3:1-15; Luke 12:42-44; and Luke 6:36.

Seek richness from God, not this world.
Proverbs 10:22 It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it.

Store up treasures that will last. Matthew 7:11
Trust YHWH with your finances. Genesis 14:18 - 20

Tithing is an act of faith and relevant to us today. Hebrews 7.1-10

I can’t afford it! Oh yes, you can, and this is why we should. Malachi 3:7-11, Deuteronomy 14:1-23; Proverbs 1:7; Psalms 34:9-10; Proverbs 3:16-19; 1 Timothy 6:5-6; Proverbs 8:18.

Enough is enough. Ephesians 5:5; Ecclesiastes 2:10-11

There is wisdom in a good plan. Proverbs 24:1-7; 16:3; 1 Peter 5:6

Further study: Matthew 25:33-40; James 2:15; 1 John 3:18-24; 2 Corinthians 8:7-15; Hebrews 13:16; Proverbs 3; Matthew 7:1-14; Philippians 4:1-20
