Saving for a rainy day is supported by the principles of God’s word. One example of this is the young man who got his inheritance and wasted it on partying (Luke 15:11-13). Had he not done so, money would have been left for him to live on (Luke 15:14-17; Ephesians 4:28). The Bible teaches wise men will have money but foolish men will waste it (Proverbs 21:20). Also we learn of a servant who failed to place his Master’s money in the bank, were it could have gained interest (Matthew 25:27).
Jesus teaches to “count the cost” before doing anything and that certainly can be applied to the use of money. Money isn’t something that we should be in love with because it can’t be taken with us at death (Matt 6:19-21; 1 Timothy 6:7-10; Job 1:21; Psalm 49:15-20). But that doesn’t mean to waste money and not be able to pay rent (Ecclesiastes 11:1-2).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
