Stewardship Changes Everything

Why are my personal finances important?

When you think of personal finances, what comes to mind? The reality today is that most people, including lots of Christians, don’t understand the true meaning of honoring God with their finances. And that’s a tragedy. Why? Because being a good steward with our personal finances is our ultimate calling as Christ followers.

Each morning, God gives you a day full of opportunities to praise him - chances to notice the small, but extraordinary gifts from your heavenly Father. Just imagine how abundant your life could be if you got serious about stewarding the little moments every day, not just with money, but with your marriage, parenting, personal development, and career!
