How to Develop a Rich Life Through the Power of Giving

How to Develop a Rich Life Through the Power of Giving

In Finance

The Bible commands us to give, and it is truly amazing to give. One of the things that I love to do is to engage in service to the community. I truly believe that engaging in service is critical to living a full and complete life. Acts 20:35 tells us, “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the word the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” I love this passage because it demonstrates the importance of giving.   The benefits…

How to Teach Your Children To Love God And Walk With Integrity

How to Teach Your Children To Love God And Walk With Integrity

In Phenomenal Living

It feels like there is an increased urgency to spread the Gospel of Christ and to walk in the way of the Lord. I’ve been talking to parents of older children to understand school programs and ways to educate children, and those discussions include their concern about what children are exposed to. Children are exposed to more much earlier, and we need to focus on raising our children in a way that is healthy and Christ-centered despite the Babylon living. A big part of this is how we live and how we raise our children, but also the messages we…

One thing that has been weighing on my spirit lately is the prevalence of “itching ears” in our community. In 2 Timothy 4:3 (ESV) the Bible says, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.” This means that people will no longer be concerned with the righteous thing to do or what is true, but will instead seek out people who will tell them what they want to hear. For example, do you have a friend that you call who will…

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card?

In Finance

Imagine receiving notice that a Catagory 4 or 5 was going to make a direct hit on your community and the authorities issued an evacuation. What would you do?  Would you stay or would you go?  The thought of escaping imminent danger is necessary, but at the same time how would you pay for it? As I was sitting with my sister trying to frantically look for $700-$1,000 flights (before the airline companies were shamed into reducing the cost), looking up pet policies for the airlines, and evaluating highway evacuation routes for which roads had the least amount of traffic,…

4 Biblical Principles for Getting Out of Debt

4 Biblical Principles for Getting Out of Debt

In Finance

One day, I was at the mall and I could not afford to buy the outfit I desired due to financial decisions committed many, many years ago. As a college student, I would vacation out of the country, purchase expensive clothing, and make a series of other poor financial decisions using my credit card. Thanks to those irrational spending behaviors, I found myself feeling enslaved. Between my current monthly expenses and the $10,000 worth of credit card debt I had acquired in college, it seemed as though the money I worked so hard for was being snatched away from me….
