God expects us to have faith, but also to use common sense and wise planning in allocating the resources He has given us. The best way to manage your money and stay out of debt is to have a strategy in place before the expenses or temptations arise.
Finance guides come and go, but as Christians throughout the centuries have known, the Bible is a finance guide for all time. From stories about rich men and paupers to proverbs with sharp insights, God’s word is filled with good advice on money.
The Bible advises us how to be the kind of person who saves enough money, spends wisely, plans ahead, gives generously, and learns to enjoy money.
The bottom line: God owns it all. List your assets, start thinking about them as “God’s assets in my care.” We are stewards, not owners!
(Psalm 95:3-7, Job 41:11, Haggai 2:8, Mark 10:43-45, 1 Corinthians 4:1-2, Matthew 25:21-30)
“Cook from scratch – make meals, eat some then freeze the rest for another day – saves a fortune and time too.
I make my own bread, buy a packet of good quality flour and make three delicious, fresh, low-salt loaves for about 30p each.” You won’t find fresh bread for 30p in the shops!
TIP OF THE MONTH…..
Think before spending.
Do you really need it? How could I put my money to better use?
