How Making Money A Priority Can Strengthen the Christian Family

Making money a priority can strengthen the Christian family.

Proverbs 10:4 "He becometh poor, that dealeth with a slack hand, but, the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” God blesses those who are willing to work. His people are created for a purpose, and each member of the family should use their gifts to build the family business. When you own your own family business, you don’t stop working at 5pm, but everything you’re doing is benefiting the whole family.

Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it."
The Bible gives guidelines for how money should be used. It should be used to benefit the family and as a tool to help others. Christian business owners should understand the importance of stewardship. If you're walking with the Lord and being good stewards, God will bless you with more money, and he doesn't bring sorrow with it. Your children will actually benefit from wealth.

Proverbs 24:3-5, "Through wisdom is a house built, And, by understanding is it established. With knowledge shall thy chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. A wise man is strong, yet a man of knowledge increases strength." Wisdom will bring wealth to the family, but this is a conditional promise. We must gain skill sets and have a desire to learn. Gaining wisdom is what strengthens our family and leads to wealth.

When Christian families strive for business and financial success, each member is able to focus on God’s will for them within the business. They learn to use money as a tool to serve God. It will also strengthen family relationships. When increasing wealth is a priority for Christian families, everyone benefits.
