The Bible & Money

Proverbs 3:10 (ESV)

then your barns will be filled with plenty,
and your vats will be bursting with wine.

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

Proverbs 3:10 is a Bible verse in the Old Testament that promises financial blessings and success for those who honor the Lord.

Proverbs 3:10 begins with “then,” which indicates that something needs to take place before the realization of the promise. Take a look at the complete statement that covers Proverbs 3:9-10.

Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with the first fruits of all your produce;
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
    and your vats will be bursting with wine.

So to enjoy the fullness of the promise of success and prosperity God’s way, we must honor Him with our wealth and the first fruits of our produce.


This might cause us to think that this is for those who are wealthy, but no, it’s for all of us—rich or poor. The word “wealth” in Hebrew means: wealth, enough, substance. “First fruits” in Hebrew means: the first, chiefest parts, principal thing.

We might not have a lot of money, but we have a principal thing—something we value.

It might be a talent we could use to honor God by giving it away to others.

It might be a collection of something we treasure.

It could even be a spiritual gift God has given us that we willingly offer back to God for Him to give or share with someone else.


Whatever it is, if we hold it up to God with open hands and offer it to Him, He will honor us with the promise of Proverbs 3:10.

        then your barns will be filled with plenty,
    and your vats will be bursting with wine.

It might be gradually, or it could be suddenly, but God always honors His Word. To the degree you offer God your heart, He will fill it with the abundance of His riches. Philippians 4:10 says,

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

Unlocking the Truth - The Righteousness of God

God promises to fill our “barns” with plenty. A barn is used as a storehouse--a place to put our wealth and riches. We tend to think of a physical barn, but there are other implications.

God is busy at work building up and restoring His house, or tabernacle in and among His people. Because His people honor Him with their wealth—financial and otherwise—He has been building up their spiritual bank accounts with plenty as Proverbs 3:10 says.

As God adds to our spiritual bank accounts, they are filled with “plenty,” which in Hebrew means: fill to satisfaction, abundance.


We might not immediately recognize them, but the gifts in our spiritual bank accounts could consist of:

·         The renewal of an old relationship

·         Restoration of an estranged one

·         Freedom from the chains of a plaguing fear

·         A business or financial opportunity

·         New and righteous desires and freedom from unrighteous ones

·         A newfound compassion for others

·         The peace of God that replaces restlessness

The riches of glory in Jesus Christ are absolutely endless, and that is so exciting!


Just like a wine vat, as grapes are added and crushed in the vat, the juice is pressed out from the grapes and it comes bursting out. We see this in the last part of Proverbs 3:10,

“and your vats will be bursting with wine.”

We honor the Lord with our spiritual and financial gifts, and He honors us spiritually and financially.

There is nothing better than experiencing Jesus Christ in the riches of spiritual freedom and financial freedom. That, my friends, is the ultimate freedom—paradise. The Kingdom of God inside and out.

Study the Bible verse of Proverbs 3:10 and experience true wealth—the riches of Jesus Christ.
