Proverbs has a lot to say about life and often it talks about money. Do you ever wish you could grow money the way the Bible says?

Let’s look at a common proverb from the Bible about making money.

Proverbs 10:4-5 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

Let’s start simply.  If you are lazy, you will not be able to grow wealth.  There are no get rich quick schemes that last.  Our integrity and values always catch up to us.

Diligent” is a great word to use in this passage.  In the original language it means: “to cut, sharpen or decide.” Wealth does not just happen.  It takes a determined decision.  You must cut off those things that are holding you back and strive for the things that brings God’s blessings.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessings of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

God does not want us to toil painfully.  We should not be afraid of hard work, but we must work with our minds as much as our bodies.  It takes intelligent planning.  We must ‘gather crops’ when it is time.  We must know our seasons.  We must work in the knowledge that we have and the experience that we gain.

It all comes down to trusting God with our decisions and always moving forward as God gives us more wisdom. Always work with integrity and diligence.  Plan out how you will grow.  And remember, growing wealth is as simple as adding value to the world and getting paid for the value you add.

Growing wealth means adding value to the world and getting paid for the value you add. #ChristianBusiness #ChristianEntrepreneur Click To Tweet
