MORE – Generosity And Faith In Your Finances


Bread & Seed 

 “It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for.”  - Robert Kiyosaki

The Bible teaches that you should be careful in how you divide your money and introduces the principle of bread and seed. "Bread" represents survival costs, and "seed" represents what we use for future growth. It suggests that you do not “eat” your seed (apart from seed not tasting good) as it is for planting so you can secure future income for yourself and your family. This wisdom suggests part of your earnings should be set aside to care for your family now and into the future and may be used for housing, savings, investment, and increasing income through business, investment or the purchase of assets. 

The Scripture commands us to not eat our seed for if you do, your future will look bleak and there will be nothing for you tomorrow. This passage’s wisdom also addresses “bread” and says it is for your family to eat (survival costs) and should not be planted as it won’t cause anything to grow (bread is as useless for planting as much as seed is for eating.) The Bible is telling us there are specific uses for our income and it should be divided as such. 

Keys to apply:

  1. List what you believe is bread and seed.

  2. Make provision for it in your Money Plan.
