Christian Finance

As Christians why we do something can be as importance as what we do. Many of the posts in this blog could be implemented by Christians and non-Christians with the same financial results. My intention, however, is that Christians start with a fundamental biblical understanding of why we do what we do with money. Then ultimately God’s kingdom benefits from our decisions not just ourselves. I have compiled some of my articles that deal specifically with the issues of Bible and Money.

Teaching about Money

  • Where did you learn about money? Explores the reality that we either learn about money subconsciously from the world around us or consciously decide to learn what the Bible teaches about money. If our money lessons are not taught from a biblical perspective we will just conform to our culture (Rom. 12:1-2).

Gather Little by Little is a personal finance blog with a Christian perspective. It’s about growing wealth in accordance with Proverbs 13:11 – Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow. Most people believe that becoming wealthy happens overnight. These same people believe that if you can’t gain wealth quickly, they’ll never be rich. The Bible tells us that this is far from the truth. Here we’ll focus on topics related to growing wealth using common sense biblical practices and by gathering money, little by little.

Fickle Finance – The goal of FeFi is to bridge the gap between monk-like piety and best-in-show prosperity that believers struggle with.

Provident Planning – Provident Planning explores God’s Provident Plan for a Christian’s personal finances. What is God’s Provident Plan?

Redeeming Riches – The mission of R2 is to think biblically and practically about our money so we can redeem back the misguided views that wealth leads to happiness; restore the way we handle our finances to become the stewards God has called us to be; and renew the correct perspective that God himself is the source of lasting joy.
