Throughout scripture, we can clearly identify five separate financial principles that can be applied to our own situations.‍..Continued 5/5 (see our previous posts)⁣⁣
1st: Spend Less than you Earn. (Oct 23rd post)
2nd: Be wise with Debt (Nov 27th post)
3rd: Plan for financial margin (Jan 15th post)
4th: Set Long-Term Goals(Feb 19th post)

5th: Give Generously, because Giving Breaks the Power of Money.
Yes, giving our resources to others in need is a nice thing to do. However, this principle goes so much deeper than that. Giving breaks the power that money has over us. God calls us to trust him, and giving generously forces us to do just that. Christ is the ultimate sacrificial giver, and we are called to live our lives in the same manner. II Corinthians 9:6-9 states, “Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant to you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: ‘He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.”
