Booker T. Washington said, “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Giving, and specifically, tithing, is very fundamental to the Christian faith. Many Christians want to know, what is a tithe and how much they should exactly be giving? Well, let’s talk about it! First, let’s define what a tithe actually is. Tithing in the Bible is the first 10% of your income and is supposed to represent the first...

In general, people spend more time at work than any other activity. The same holds true for Christians. We want our entire lives to please God and the portion we spend at our “9 to 5” is not exempt. God never intended any portion of our lives to be lived apart from Him. We are ambassadors for Christ every day — including during our workday. We stand in agreement with the Apostle Paul, who declares in...

One of the core values of a healthy marriage should include healthy finances. Even more importantly, although the marital bed should be kept warm and undefiled, it can indeed become cold, unsafe and distant — the space between spouses during times of financial unrest can feel like a deep, dark, bleak abyss. Of course, the coolness of the mattress can happen for several reasons, but studies have shown that increasing distance between spouses is often...

Have you ever been scrolling through Instagram only to come across an account of someone in a new outfit or on a beach and then immediately wonder, “I think it’s time for me to buy a new outfit (or book a vacation”…)  Yeah. Us too.  There are times that we all may have fallen victim to the fear of missing out (you know, FOMO). This fear is not a new phenomenon, but one that is highlighted...

One of the often-overlooked attributes of  God is that fact that He is very much concerned with business and business dealings. There are whole sections of Proverbs dedicated to business wisdom, and even Jesus speaks the language of business on several occasions (e.g., when he refers to counting the cost to build a tower as well as when He tells the parable of the talents).  Therefore, we believe that God is a CEO, and tucked...

The world we live in has never been as enticing, innovative, and fast-paced as we know it now. Everything whirls around us in fast-forward motion: The updates, progress, and speed of information all blur our understanding of “right now” — and are changing our ideas about the future. In this age of the world, those of us who seek to be successful are tasked with not only keeping up with the pace, but transforming and...

Like any of the unhealthy cycles, patterns, and templates of our lives, poverty is another that God does not intend for us. He actually desires that, not only do we have everything that we need, but that we live inside of His abundance. He is a God of extravagance and of generosity, and everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. He delights in spreading His wealth, gifting all that He has to...

Budgeting money can appear to be a very intimidating task. All those numbers and calculations is enough to make anyone’s head spin … … which is probably why most people choose to just ignore their finances altogether! After all, ignorance is bliss, right? Statistics show that almost 80% of full-time workers are living paycheck to paycheck. That means that if an emergency were to pop up at any moment (and let’s be honest, they often...
