frugaling part 5



BE GOOD (or behave)
verses from the book of Proverbs on handling money


Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops;
Then your barns will be filled to overflowing and your vats will brim over with new wine.  3:9

My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another, if you have been trapped by what you have said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, then do this my son, to free yourself since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands.  Go and humble yourself; press your plea with your neighbor.  Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids.  Free yourself, like a gazelle, from the hand of the Hunter,Mike a bird from the snare of a fowler.  6:1-5

The wicked man earns deceptive wages but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.  11:18

One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.  11:24

A generous man will prosper;he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.  11:25

People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.  11:26

Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.  13:11

He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame but whoever heeds correction is honored.  13:18

Misfortune pursues the sinner but prosperity is the reward of the righteous.  13:21

A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.  13:22

The righteous eat to their heart’s content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.  13:25

The poor are shunned even by their neighbor's, but the rich have many friends.  14:20

Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.  16:8

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting with strife.  17:1

A man of perverse heart does not prosper;  he whose tongue is deceitful falls into trouble.  17:20

He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and He will reward him for what he has done.  19:17

Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man; but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel.  20:17

A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.  21:6

If a man shuts he ears to the cry of the poor, he too, will cry out and not be answered.  21:13

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.  22:1

A generous man will himself be blessed for he shares his food with the poor.  22:9

He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich – both come to poverty.  22:16

Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.  22:22

If your enemy is hungry give him food to eat;  if he is thirsty give him water to drink.  I doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head and the LORD will reward you.  25:21

Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse.  28:6

He who increases his wealth by exorbitant interest amasses it for another who will be kind to the poor.  28:8

A tyrannical ruler lacks judgment, but he who hates ill-gotten gain will enjoy a long life.  28:16

A faithful man will be richly blessed but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.  28:20

A stingy man is eager to get rich and is unaware that poverty awaits him.  28:22

He who robs his father or mother and says, “It’s not wrong” – he is partner to him who destroys.  28:24

A greedy man stirs up dissension but he who trusts in the LORD will prosper.

He who gives to the poor lacks nothing, but he who closes his eye to them receives many curses.  28:27

The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.  29:7

Two things I ask of you O LORD; do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches but give me only my daily bread.  Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, “ Who is the LORD?”  Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my GOD.  30:7-9
