In my high school years, I gave up sports for a different activity – Bible Quiz. For those who have never heard of Bible Quiz, it’s an activity in the AG churches that brings together youth to quiz them on different books of the Bible each year. Yes, it sounds dorky, but we ended up memorizing over 2,000 verses that sharpened our minds and strengthened our faith!
Before you begin your journey to get out of debt, it is important to know what the Bible says about debt. You can then use these truths to build your faith since faith comes by hearing the word. Once you have a solid understanding of what God has to say about the issue, then you can boldly pray about your debt in faith.
So you want to learn how to quit spending more money than you make? Here are a few ideas that have helped me…
It is difficult to make a list of the best Bible verses – I mean they are all great – right? But, I decided to compile a list of the most famous Bible verses and here they are…
Everyone needs a bit of encouragement from time to time. Thankfully, the Bible is full of encouraging verses! Even in the midst of the “financial crisis” that we are in the middle of, we can remain hopeful and encouraged if we keep trusting in God. I have found that the key is to finding specific Bible verses and meditating on them. According to the Word, this is how faith comes. The more we soak up the truth of God’s Word, the more assured we become that He really is going to take care of us!
Have you ever wondered how setting a goal and following God’s will can co-exist? After all, what is the point setting a goal that isn’t what God is wanting for us?
Last weekend I decided to take Linda on a mother’s day trip to Nashville for the weekend. She has proved to be an awesome mother to our baby boy for the last 15 months and she deserved a little trip away. On the morning we were set to come back home, we began packing up. […]
Giving is giving, right? Not if you’re a Christian. There are ways to give – and God wants us to give – and there are ways we shouldn’t give. One way we shouldn’t is giving publicly. As Christians, we’re told to give in secret.
The argument I hear about tithing time sounds logical: “I just can’t afford it. Every penny is spent before the month begins. Wouldn’t God understand if I were to tithe my time instead of my money?” While I don’t believe this is a black-and-white issue, I do see some problems with this mindset.
In his book, Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis explains an aspect of the Christian faith by comparing it to receiving and giving a gift.
As a reader of ChristianPF, I assume that you agree with this statement: “Even if you pay off every debt, build a fully funded emergency fund, invest wisely for retirement, save for your children’s college fund, and pay off your house early, you could still be missing the most important personal finance principle: giving!”
As Christians, we never want to get into the legalistic practice of creating “to do lists” that we must follow in order to define ourselves as believers. But at the same time, there certain things every Christian should do every day in order to stay in faith. “But be doers of the word, and not […]
There are bad days, and then there are really bad days, maybe even rising to the level of your worst day. We can probably separate worst days from bad days based on the impact that the day will have on your life. For example, on a bad day the damage is usually limited to today […]
Ever feel like your life is stuck in fast-forward? From the moment our feet hit the floor in the morning, it seems like we never let up on life’s gas pedal . . . .
It’s fascinating to read the parables of Jesus because there always seems to be something new that comes from it. That’s how I feel about the parable of the sower.
Giving doesn’t always involve opening your wallet. Some of these unforgettable givers did indeed make amazing financial contributions to God’s Kingdom work, but others are amazing because they gave in other ways. Whatever the type of giving, I offer a “gentle challenge” for each, in hopes that you – like me – will become a better giver.
I did some digging to find some scriptures about business, because I want to do business the right way. So whether you are a business owner, an employee of a business, or just buy stuff from businesses (that covers just about all of us – right?) there is some wisdom to be received from these scriptures.
I often think about what Jesus might say regarding the American Dream. Would he want everyone to be a homeowner, everyone to have comfort and the security of a nice economy with nothing to worry about?
We want to honor God in all that we do. Honoring Him is, of course, commanded. The more we come to love God, though, the more it should be our desire to honor Him in all we do. That needs to be true in our financial lives as much as it is true in any other area of our lives.
