Over the past two decades we've studied the topic of biblical stewardship, as well as taught it and put into practice. In our latest podcast series, we take a look at the key elements for a biblical understanding of personal finances. We hope you'll join us and embrace what we call the ultimate paradigm shift in your financial life!
In the final episode of our podcast series on managing money and possessions as wise stewards, we take a look at what it means to find true financial freedom. We talk about our goals as we aim for financial freedom, and the character traits required to get there. We also share our take on Dave Ramsey's "baby steps", as a guide for transforming your finances.
When it comes to personal finance, one of the best lessons to learn is avoiding the use of debt. Debt has become widely accepted in our culture, to the point where some would argue that they cannot survive without it. We are here to tell you there is a better way. When you invite God into your finances, you can live a debt-free lifestyle.
In this podcast episode, we ask ourselves, “Do we have enough?” and “How can Christians find true and lasting happiness?” The answers can be found in cultivating contentment in our lives. We believe that contentment is not about a number, or achieving a certain amount of wealth to be satisfied. It's about the attitude of the heart, being content with whatever God blesses you with to manage for His glory.
Balance gets complicated when you consider the outside forces acting on your life. The needs of your family, the demands of your job, and the rug-pulling effect of unexpected crises are all obvious factors that affect your balance. Which priorities are you not fulfilling with excellence?
We define biblical stewardship as Christians managing God's resources in accordance with biblical priorities. This requires the conversion of our hearts, minds, calendars, and pocketbooks. It means that decisions on how to invest our resources are really spiritual decisions that require faithfulness and wisdom.
There is a financial pattern in our world that is not in alignment with God's Word. The paradigm shift starts with giving ownership of money and possessions back to God.
How do you live a strategic life? How do you make the most of the resources that God has entrusted to your care, and avoid the pitfalls that distract you from His calling on your life?
In this video, we share 5 keys for Christians to live intentionally and effectively. When these 5 strategic elements come together, Christians can live the fruitful and abundant life that God has called us to live.
