God’s Provision: Maintain Integrity

“God cares about honesty in the workplace; your business is His business” (Proverbs 16:11 MSG).

God promises to meet all your financial needs, if you (1) ask Him for help; (2) learn to be content; (3) practice giving in faith; and (4) maintain your integrity.

God doesn’t bless dishonesty. Proverbs 16:11 (NLT) says, “The Lord demands fairness in every business deal.” That includes wages, sales, and taxes.  

If you want God’s blessing on your finances, you’ve got to be honest. You can’t rip people off. Profit made dishonestly always brings trouble. Always.

“The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and He adds no trouble to it” (Proverbs 10:22 NIV). Have you ever known anybody who made money, and it just brought trouble? You will always reap what you sow. If you are dishonest with others, it will be returned to you. If you think you haven’t been caught, understand that the clock is still ticking. You cannot mock God and get away with it.

Be honest. Be honest with your finances: “It is the Lord’s blessing that makes you wealthy” (Proverbs 10:22 TEV).

Tomorrow we’ll look at trusting God, another condition for answered prayer.
