Bible’s Take In Growing Your Money

There are varied stories and tales stressing how the slow always wins the race. Take for instance, “The Tortoise and The Hare” and “The Turtle Always Wins”. And didn’t you know even the bible says it so. Take Proverbs 13:11 that states,

"Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow."

There is no denying that indeed being slow can help us to get where we want to be. It may sound ironic because you need to hustle in order to get there but building your wealth is another ball game. The best thing to do is to work slowly and do it little by little.

Being able to gather money this way is important to making it grow. After all, many can just opt to spend it all away and only a few are keen towards saving it and making it happen. Hence, the bible states that you let your money grow. And only those who did it can be wealthy.

The bible passage states that we need to establish our own little by little scheme in order to create our very own wealth. This means having a steady cash flow and being able to save up regularly. When we are able to define it, we can then strengthen it and fortify it.

There are two facets we need to look at here. First is being able to gather money and being able to save money.

Gather Money

It is important that we get to have a regular money stream. That is why more than work, we need to be able to look for multiple streams of income. Even if each stream would just be very minimal, every penny that would come from it matters. As much as possible, you must be able to cover two dimensions, the regular source of income and the irregular. The regular would mean having a day job and the irregular would be from investments and the like.

Save Money

The passage is an affirmation that we should save up little by little. Regardless of percentage you set for your savings, the most important thing there is to save. Make it grow and make it flourish. Even in stock market investing, we are often told to invest little by little. Do not pour in all your money in there. Investing is also not done overnight. It takes time and the trend is also little by little.

In here, we are also taught of the value of patience. No one becomes wealthy overnight. It will always take time and discipline to do it regularly and do it continuously. If you are already doing such, you are already in the right path.

Remember, gather money by having multiple income streams, collect and save the money you’ve got little by little, strengthen your income streams and fortify your savings.
