Sunday is normally a day of rest for me. I honestly try to give thanks to the Creator of all that is good in the universe on this day.
However, now well into my fourth decade in and around the financial arena, I’ve truly never been more alarmed on what faces America. IMHO, we’re on the threshold of an economic, social, political and spiritual crisis unlike anything ever experienced in our nation’s history!
For many reading this, money and matters of finance impact their lives, and/or those they care for, more than any other life factor. I’m writing to you today to share with you what I found to be the single, best guide to matters of finance.
PLEASE!!!!! I’m not a religious zealot or trying to influence your choice of any religion. I’m here simply to tell you about the absolute best single source for guidance on matters of finance. No, it’s not my book, my financial mentor’s two books, or the tens of thousands of books that have been written about money matters. No, none of them (or mine) have all, or nearly all the answers (If they did, it would have been handed to you a long time ago so you can walk past that part of any book store).
Like it or not, the “Holy Bible” has not only been the most read book in history, its second most talked about topic is financial matters. Scripture has 500 verses on prayer, less than 500 verses on faith, but over 2,000 verses on the subject of money. So whether the Bible is the word of God or just writings of humans for whatever purposes they may have had, the fact is it has stood the test of time when every other single financial-related book has come and gone (mine too will be gone).
For you, and for those you love and care for, please read my “Biblical Perspective on Matters of Finance”. You need not be religious or feel guilty it’s somehow just for so-called “religious” people. Read it simply as if you saw an article in the newspaper or online.
We’re about to experience a period of time most are not remotely prepared for. I truly believe those who are not grounded in sound financial principles shall suffer greatly no matter what their so-called “worth” is at the moment.
For your children and grandchildren, I like to also suggest you also read my “Kids & Cash – What Every Parent Needs to Know to Raise a Financially healthy Child”.
Thank you for allowing me to intrude on your Sunday.
P.S. Because I openly speak about my own struggles, many others confide in me their troubles, and/or those of others.
I was given the following awhile back and I take it out to remind myself who’s most likely at the core of my struggle at that time:
“One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside of people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, fear, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, virtue, and faith. The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather. “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
