Why do we complicate our finances? The rules of financial health are simple.
- Honor the Lord
- Spend less than you earn
- Save a portion
- Avoid debt
In This Episode, We Look At:
It’s our behavior that drives our finances.
Do we consider God when making money decisions? We remind ourselves that we work hard and that we deserve nice things. We pay now and deal with the consequences later.
We have no one telling us what to do.
We either self-destruct or flourish based on the decisions we make. Doing it our way can be expensive, frustrating, and even destructive.
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Prov 16:25
We have no clear, written financial path to follow.
We wing it and try to do our best.
Let’s look at those basic rules again, but focusing on God’s ways instead of our ways (Isaiah 55:8).
Honor the Lord: Prov. 3:9-10
Spend less than you earn: Prov. 27:23
Save a portion: Prov. 21:20
Avoid debt: Prov 22:7
