Biblical Financial Lessons – Proverbs 13:11

This is a series that appears on a weekly basis here at – “Biblical Financial Lessons”

I believe that the Bible is the best money book ever written, and I really want to take some time each week to share the money lessons I have learned from the Word.

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

The part of this verse that speaks strongest to me is “he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.”  For some reason when I was broke, I felt like the only way to win with money and gain margin was to save money in HUGE CHUNKS.  Since that was impossible, it almost felt pointless to even get started.

BUT when I started saving money a little at a time, I STOPPED being broke and have been able to live to financial margin.


  1. Do you BELIEVE that you can save money little by little?
  2. How much are you saving from each paycheck?
  3. How much (or how much more) could you start saving from each paycheck?

What is ONE THING you could do today that would make a difference tomorrow?

    I believe I could save money little by little if: I had more than a poverty level income, I didn’t have a student loan collector taking 10 percent of my income every month, and my student loan balance were not increasing every month due to punitive penalties.

    And I don’t think there is one thing I could do today to change that. (No skills and no money to go to school to get skills.)
