A lot of people struggle with the idea of wealth and decide that perhaps we should live a simple life devoted to God. But what does the bible say about wealth? This article will explore some of the concepts in the bible about creating wealth so you can make your own opinion.
There are lots of extracts in the bible that contain teachings about money and wealth, and some may surprise you.
Matthew 6:24 states that you cannot serve God and Money, and Timothy 6:17 states that you should be generous with your wealth.
Generally speaking, many bible extracts speak of money becoming the focus of your life as a negative thing, but if you’re willing to share your abundance and use it to help others then it can be a positive thing in your relationship with God and bringing you closer to your religion.
Philippians 4:19 also states that God will supply all your needs, so if you find yourself in a place of abundance then this denotes that it was God’s will.
Wealth is not something to be feared as bad or sinful; it is a tool that can be used to help many others, and sharing abundance is a beautiful thing, since a lot of good can be done with financial prosperity.

If you are looking for ways to help your family, meet your own financial needs and help others with excess abundance, then you can have faith and do this too.
Deuteronomy 8:18 “But Remember the Lord Your God, for it is he that gives you the ability to produce wealth.”
