“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16
As we explore April Wisdom on The Noble Man Podcast, we’ve got to have the money talk. In Episode 54, Randy Rowekamp, statewide director for Crown Financial Ministries and long-time friend of Noble Warriors, gives us a wise perspective when stewarding our finances.
It’s a heart issue. Out of 2,350 Bible verses regarding money and possessions, about 80% of them deal with heart issues that affect our views on money such as pride, greed, and covetousness. If we learn to think biblically about our finances, our decisions will stem from those roots.
“People’s beliefs drive their behaviors, no matter what the subject. So we want to help people transform their beliefs about money to do money God’s way… They’ll be more peaceful. They’ll be more content. They’ll be more generous.”
Randy walks us through some thought process on tithing, retirement, home-buying, budgeting and spending strategies in marriage, and real steps you can take towards financial freedom. Sound unrealistic? Randy says financial freedom is a place in life where you are free to do what God is calling you to do.
I challenge you to tune in and write down some action steps you can do today to biblically steward what’s been given to you. And check out the many resources Crown Financial has to offer including special Coronavirus resources and Money Dates for you and your spouse. No matter where you are in your journey, you can jump onto the path to solid financial ground.
