Blessings Vs. Curses When it Comes to Our Money

August 24, 2018

If we really want to serve God with our finances and reflect Him with our choices, then it stands to reason we should be ready to accept His blessings when we’re faithful. But are we also willing to accept His correction when we fall short?  Correction is rarely comfortable, but God’s correction is for our ultimate benefit. On this edition of MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore unpack some of the ways God blesses and disciplines us to get us on the path to being godly stewards. 

Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following: 

  • If you just started a new job that offers a 401(k) with no company matching, should you participate? 
  • If you've heard it’s better to get a home equity loan and pay off your mortgage if you have more equity in your house than you owe, should you believe this?    
  • If you're getting married later this year, how should you handle a mutual fund that was created for your fiancé when she was young?
  • If you're 41, how do you determine whether you need life insurance and how much to get?
  • Should you use a 401(k) to pay off credit card debt?
