Rich Toward God

September 11, 2018

The world is obsessed with money and possessions. Some people become workaholics to build wealth while other play the lottery. But do you know what it means to be rich toward God? Here’s a hint: it’s not by building bigger barns.  On this edition of MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore discuss the parable of the rich fool. 

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

  • If you and your husband are going back to school and the program will cost about $60,000, should your take out a student loan or take it out of your retirement fund?
  • According to God’s principles, what level of financial help should you offer one of your grown sons who is struggling financially. 
  • If your son asked has if your should tithe from the gross or the net, what's the correct answer?
  • If your car is about to reach 100,000 miles, should you trade it in while its still worth something or just start saving so that you're ready when it eventually needs to be replaced?
