The Bible and Money

I’m on a journey to discover what the Bible says about money, so each week, I write a post on the Bible and money, sharing what I’m learning.

The Bible really has a lot to say about money. In fact, Jesus talked about it more than just about any other thing.

Each Sunday, I share a different Bible verse on money.  Here are the verses I’ve written about so far.  You can click the “read more” link to read what I have to say about each verse.
