The Bible has many verses about money, whether speaking of its importance or the potential for it to detract from our relationship with family, friends, or Him. However, our lives are reliant on the use of money to provide food, shelter, clothing, and other necessities. It is, therefore, imperative that we approach money management from a biblical perspective. Hebrews 13:5 (ESV) states, “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for He has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.'”
