Bible Verses About Man Providing For His Family

Bible Verses About Man Providing For His Family

If you’ve ever been in a relationship, you know that it can be hard to figure out how to provide for yourself and your family. The Bible has plenty of advice about the topic; here are some of my favorites:

Proverbs 14:1

Verse 1: A wise woman builds her house, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.

A man who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.

The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception.

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

Proverbs 14:26-27

There are several passages in the Bible that talk about man providing for his family. Proverbs 14:26-27 reads, “A king who sits on the throne of justice, will maintain the cause of the afflicted and give food to the poor. He will make a fair distribution of bread, and according to what he has determined, he will distribute it.”

This passage emphasizes that men should provide for their families even if it means working hard or long hours. Men should prioritize providing for their family regardless of how tired they are or how many hours they’ve had to work.

Proverbs 15:4-5

Proverbs 15:4-5 says, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, but the mouth of fools spouts folly.”

The Bible is clear that a man should provide for his family. In fact, it goes so far as to say that if he doesn’t do this then he is not fulfilling his role as a husband and father (1 Timothy 5:8).

Proverbs 25:28

Proverbs 25:28

A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.

You can’t live on bread alone.

The Bible is full of passages that remind us that faith, hope, and love are all essential parts of our lives. Without them we have nothing.

But what about bread?

The Bible also says you can’t live on bread alone… but what does this mean? Is it saying that we should neglect important aspects of life like food or money in favor of faith? Or does it mean that we shouldn’t rely solely on material things for happiness, especially since material things only last so long? In fact, many Biblical scholars think the passage refers to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount—a section where He encourages His followers not to focus solely on “getting their hands dirty” or working hard at something with no reward or recognition from others because there’s always someone willing to do those jobs for less pay (and/or they don’t need as much money).

You’re a man, so you can’t live on bread alone. You need to provide for your family. It’s not always easy, especially when you’re trying to do it all on your own with no help from anyone else. But God has given us these verses in His Word as encouragement and instructions on how to be good providers for our families (as well as others) today!
