Let’s talk about money and your future. We hope to establish within both our church community and well as my extended family a thoughtful conversation about finances. Let’s have a clear talk about the issues, one at a time – delving in detail as necessary, but laying first a foundation, then hitting issue after issue from a biblical perspective. Issues like Debt, Living within Your Means, Saving, Emergency Funds, Checking Accounts, Credit cards, 401-Ks and IRAs, Investing, Spouses Working and even Who Does The Checks. Finances for a lifetime!
For those of you who are serious about gaining greater insight, I want to encourage you to do every module (Part 1, Part 2, etc.) all the way to the end. I’ll be adding a module a week until we reach the end of the course. If you complete all of modules, we will have an online exam, and those who make a B or better will get a Certificate of Completion. The lessons are very short, but their difficulty is not in length but in depth and challenge.
One word of warning: your efforts will not do much good if you skip around. The content is purposely sequential, and even though it may not seem that important at first, I hope you will hang with me. I also want you to know this is a collaborative effort, with insightful friends lending a hand, and several of us have been praying very specifically for grace to make this really useful. I promise you that many obstacles, both current and future, will be removed if you can apply what we present. We will be mining the principles of dealing with money straight out of the Bible. So expect great concepts!
And pace yourself. I would recommend doing only one module a week. Muse on the shared content all week – think about your personal issues and the simple truths in each module.
