1. Respond out of fear. Money mistakes can be made during times of uncertainty, and the first battle is fear.
2. Focus on what you can’t control. You can control what God puts in your hands as a steward. Use your budget/spending plan as you’ve planned and continue to reduce debt if possible. Then Ron shares the five more things to focus on.
3. Watch the daily moves of your investment accounts. Don’t watch the news or the ups and downs in your investment accounts 24/7. Focus on Bible study and gaining more biblical wisdom.
4. Cut your giving. They discuss some biblical examples of giving during a crisis. Look for opportunities to be generous and give.
5. Deviate from your long-term spending plan. If you have a long-term financial plan, stick to the plan and don’t react out of fear. Also, remember to trust God—not your investments.
6. Hide from your creditors. Keep an open dialogue with your credits if you’re having challenges paying your expenses. Be humble and honorable.
7. Ignore what God may be saying to you. Spend time with him and listen for his guidance and wisdom.
We have the daily opportunities to be salt and light to the world. Let's pay attention and trust him in our daily actions and decisions.
