Many people do not think that the Bible can guide finance but sees it as the literal God’s Word. Personal accounting and finance books like “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki are among the best selling books over decades compared to other books in different sectors.  The Bible provides substantial guidance on finance and money matters through different stories and statements. Modern accounting is said to have started around the 15th century where most ideas in accounting were developed. The Bible, on the other hand, covers events that happened between 1800 B.C and 95 A.D. These events are directly or indirectly related to modern accounting and finance. Some of the financial and accounting tips that can be borrowed from the Bible include setting priorities, making budgets and avoiding debts.
