What Does the Bible Teach About Spending Money?

There are two common feelings associated with spending – guilt and pleasure (which may lead to indulgence). At times people feel one or the other of those emotions, and at times they feel both. Either extreme is terribly dangerous. An overly guilty conscience makes it difficult to honor the generosity of the Father. If God is the Source of all we have then ultimately it is a blessing to be … [Read more...]

Should I Save For Retirement or Give that Money Instead?

Editor’s note: I wrote this article a long time ago (August).  I’ve never been closer to pulling an article off my posting schedule (I’m writing this within three hours of posting time).  In some posts, like this one, I try to challenge your thinking without necessarily dictating an action for you.  I’m trying to challenge traditional thinking in light of the gospel.  If your thinking was … [Read more...]

Who gets to decide (judge) what is … [Read more...]

There are blogs, websites, and financial calculators to help with the process.

This guest post is contributed by Rachel King, who writes on the topic of Christian Universities . Rachel welcomes your comments at her email address: r.king8383@reddifmail.com Money simply does not have the value it once did.

The Importance of Attitude for Christian Finances

Christians can do the right things with the wrong attitude and this ultimately makes their actions wrong. Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-10) What these two did was amazing. They gave more than I have ever given on a single occasion.  This couple sold a piece of property and gave a substantial amount to the church. The problem is that they misrepresented the sale price.  They said it … [Read more...]
