How to run your family finances to God’s Glory ……
How we manage our family finances is always an important issue. As Christians our lives should demonstrate different values to those of the world around us. Are you teaching your kids to be financially prudent and responsible? Do you involve them in the budgeting of your monthly family income or do you choose not to burden them with such matters? David Murray writes a witty and enlightening article on the subject of financial openness with our kids and teaching them good stewardship of what God has given us. http://headhearthand.org/blog/2014/01/09/so-dad-how-much-do-you-earn/
We have 2 great books on the subject of family and church finances. In the book Family Money Matters, the author establishes biblical principles of home finance and then gives practical advice in areas such as debt, choosing a home, buying a car, insurance and pensions.
The Book Make your church’s money work helps you to achieve financial integrity in your church congregation. The finances of a church are a concrete expression of its vision, its priorities and its commitment to doing things decently and in order. Written in non-accountancy terminology, the author examines the basis of sound biblical stewardship as applied to the practical aspects of budgeting, reporting and control of expenses in a church. A must read by church leaders & anyone who spends any of the church’s money.
