Scriptures about Debt

Aug-30-2017 By Frugal 101

There are plenty of scriptures about debt and finances, but the majority of American Christians choose to ignore them. Don’t be one of them and take the word of God seriously.

Proverbs 24:27

Prepare your work outside and make it ready for yourself in the field; afterwards, then, build your house.

Deuteronomy 28:12

The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

Psalm 37:25

I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging bread.

Proverbs 22:26-27

Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.

Proverbs 21:20

The wise man saves for the future but the foolish man spends whatever he gets.

Hebrews 13:5

Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have.

Exodus 22:25

If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him interest.

Ecclesiastes 5:5

It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.

Romans 13:8

Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

1 Corinthians 16:2

On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.

Psalm 37:21

The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.

1 Timothy 6:7-10

For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

    So true. I’ve always been thrifty and consider it part of how I live my faith. One book that was so encouraging & inspiring (yet fun to read) was Lorilee Craker’s newest: Money Secrets of the Amish. The Amish are truly frugal, and for them, it is out of obedience to God.
