10 My Favourite Bible Scriptures A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just (Proverbs 13 v 22 - see also Proverbs 19 v 14) Inheritance planning For wisdom is a defence and money is a defence ( Ecclesiastes 7 v 12a) Defence

11 My Favourite Bible Scriptures Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink, ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put into a bag with hole (Haggai 1 v 6) Wages are being devoured by taxes, debt and general bills!

12 My Favourite Bible Scriptures In all labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury or poverty (Proverbs 14 v 23) Decide your type of labour The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty (Proverbs 10 v 15) Be aware of the effects of poverty

13 My Favourite Bible Scriptures Jesus’ parable of the pounds Luke 19 v 11 – 27 ‘For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even what he hath shall be taken away from him’. (Luke 19 v 26) Trading is important!
