The Basics Of Biblical Finance

  • Get out of debt
    Debt = Risk
    100% of foreclosures occur on homes that have a mortgage
    It’s hard to serve two masters

“The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.”  Proverbs 22:7

  • Act your wage
    You need to learn to live on less than you make.
    Godliness with contentment is great gain

“A foolish man devours all he has.”  Proverbs 21:20

  • Get on a budget
    Parable of the talents
    If you can’t handle a little bit of money, God will not bless you with more.

“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it?” Luke 14:20

  • Save and Invest
    Save for an emergency fund.
    Save up and pay cash for things.
    McDonald’s did focus group studies, and they found that with credit cards, you spend 47% more at McDonalds than if you pay with cash.

“In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil.” Proverbs 21:20

  • Give

“Bring all tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house.”
Malachi 3:10

Live like no one else, so that later you can live like no one else.

    He had a couple of really good analogies that really hit home for me. He said “If you were the money manager for a corporation called ‘You Inc.’ would you fire yourself”. Really made me think about the decisions I make with money. The other analogy was if you were gonna build a 4 million dollar house and the developer shows up with a pencil drawing on the back of a paper bag as his plan, you’d find someone else. In the course of your lifetime you will probably earn at least 4 million, is your plan any better?
