010: Do We Have a Responsibility to Pay for Our Children's Higher Education?

As parents, we want the best for our precious children. Does that include paying for their college education?

In This Episode We Look At:

Parents should prioritize providing for their household: Avoid saving for college if it is detrimental to the family’s financial health.

Continue (or begin) your financial commitments to the Lord: Ecc 5:5 “better is it that thou shouldest not vow, that that shouldest vow and not pay”

The Problem with Student Loans: Don’t be hasty in moving toward indebtedness.

Those that choose to save and invest for their children’s education: Remember that time passes quickly! Start when they are very young–time is a factor.
