The Bible is not just a book filled with old stories, but is also packed with truth and revelation that is relevant to present day issues and situations. The Word of God is complete in that it gives light and insight to every area of life. From relationships, work issues, character development, leadership and even finances.
In fact, there is a strong Biblical emphasis on handling and making use of money. That's because God is a God who wants to stay relevant so as to guide us in everyday living. It is not God's intent to leave you hanging on a thread and blindly figuring out principles of money, but to graciously give us principles and ideas to use finances to benefit from and to bring glory to Him.
In His ministry, Jesus spoke about money and financial management. The wise king Solomon also gave instruction and counsel on how to handle money and how to put in investments. For those who want to go into investments and passive income, the Bible covers that topic as well.
Here are nine scriptures that teach us a thing or two about the best practices of investing.

2 Corinthians 9:6 | The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
