Train Your Children to be Givers

I tried to teach my children when they were young that they were to be givers.

The Bible says, “God gives seed to the sower” (Isaiah 55:10; 2 Corinthians 910).  It also says in Galatians 6:7 (KJV), “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”  Continue reading…


God Wants to do Life With You!

The book of Proverbs is filled with practical tips and instructions for everyday living on topics that range from how to treat your neighbor, to how to train your kids, to how to handle your finances and have a good work ethic.

However, although the Bible is filled with natural, practical things that we are responsible to do, we must not forget that God is always ready to come alongside and help us.

Order Precedes Increase

Before God can take us somewhere, we need to know where we are. This applies to every area of our lives, including our finances. We need to establish financial order in our lives. We must understand that order precedes increase.

JoeMcGee October_Quote Box_4

When people come to me for financial help, my first questions to them are, “How much debt do you have? How much do you owe?”

“We don’t know,” they tell me. “We just know we’re in trouble.”

Then I’ll ask, “Where are your bank statements? How much money do you have?”

They’ll say, “Some of our statements are on the kitchen table. Some are in the den. They’re scattered all over the house!”

Proverbs 27:32 says, “Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.” And Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”

Friends, a lot of people are perishing needlessly simply because they have no vision and no plan, for their finances, and they have no financial order. These are very natural processes, but they have spiritual consequences.

Before God can do His supernatural part, we must do our natural part. We must get our finances in order, and we must create a plan.

THE TAKE AWAY

Take time to go over your current financial status. Make a list of how much you owe and how much income you currently generate. Create a budget—a spending plan—to begin working toward paying off debt and also to locate areas where you may need to watch your spending.

First Things First

The new year gives us a renewed desire to set goals, which means getting our priorities in order.
Have you ever had so many things you “need” to do that you don’t get any of them done? It can seem overwhelming! 

When you don’t know what to start on, let God’s Word help determine what priorities to put first in your life this year.
WHAT THE WORD SAYS:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… John 1:1-5

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well… Matt 6:33

The first of all the commandments is; love the Lord thy God… Mark 12:28-30 Continue reading…
