Let’s face it. If you live in America, you are rich. Sure, there are exceptions like those who can’t afford food or shelter, but generally speaking, if you compare yourself to others around the world, you are filthy rich…

What I love about it is that, you can run out and buy everything mentioned here and actually be richer in a year! Yes you are welcome!
No one likes to fail, but often it is a critical component to our success. These are a few of the things I did to overcome my fear of failure
I recently spoke with a single mom who was planning to mortgage her paid for house in order to ease her children’s college burdens. Her logic? “I just can’t let them accumulate all of those student loans. What kind of a mother would?”
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.
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!
I am currently reading Your Money or Your Life – which is a great book by the way. And I won’t turn this article into a review of the book since I haven’t finished it yet, but one of the things that I found very valuable the other day was calculating your real hourly wage. It’s not as simple as saying, “I make $400 a week and work 40 hours, therefore I make $10/hr.” When you factor in all the additional expenses of having your job (which some may not be obvious) that you could avoid if you didn’t have that particular job, you begin to see the value in this calculation.

The Bible says that Solomon was the richest man who ever lived and also the wisest ever to live (1 Kings 4:31). I think that makes him qualified to give some financial advice
In the case of this article, I picked out five of the best personal finance books out there that you can get for less than a buck. I wouldn’t say that these are necessarily the five best financial books written, but they are all very popular and have proved themselves to be worth something – even if it is only a buck! 😉
Let me start by saying that it was difficult to create this list. Think about it, I am trying to pick the best verses from the Bible about a particular topic. Are there really best verses, or are there just those that have impacted us more than others? I tend to think the latter. So, this list is just that. These are the 5 verses that, even as I just scratch the surface of understanding them, have revolutionized my financial life. Each one of them has had a strong impact on many decisions in my life. I hope you allow them to impact you as well.
