42+Bible Verses About  Lending And Borrowing Money – KJV

The Bible has a lot to say about money, and if we read those scriptures, we will undoubtedly learn how to handle money. Since money is the source of all evil, we should manage it in accordance with God’s will if we want to enjoy mental peace.

Those who are in need should be given money, but we shouldn’t charge them any interest. God desires that we aid those who are in need. When God provides for us financially, we should thank him by helping the less fortunate.

We should also be aware that we shouldn’t borrow money from others unless we absolutely need it. We frequently just borrow money and spend it without giving it any thought. This subsequently becomes a habit, and the Lord desires to instil such evil habits in us since they will ultimately lead to our destruction.

God is aware of our wants and will meet them when the time is appropriate, so we should be patient. The most crucial item we require is the Lord’s wisdom, which will enable us to manage our finances in line with his will.

Let’s examine the following texts from the Bible to learn more about what the Lord has to say regarding borrowing and lending money.
