Happy New Year! What a great statement!
What a great time to reflect, renew, and refocus on important areas in our lives. One of the most popular goals at the beginning of any, New Year is the pursuit of being debt free. Statistics tell us that the Average American Household Debt is $5,700, while the mean credit card debt of U.S. households is approximately $5,700. Texas is ranked as the 13th highest average debt at $6,948.
Many of us can relate to this, as Christmas has just passed and the credit card bills will be due soon. We all know what financial stress is, and it, most likely, invades our minds and hearts on a very consistent basis. We all have to make financial decisions every day and many times we are not sure what we should do from Christmas presents to college tuitions, car notes to house notes, having children to retirement, and on and on we could go.
Money will be a big part of our lives until the day we leave this life. What is your plan? Have you ever considered what God or the Bible has to say about finance and even our faith? Here’s one verse that describes one aspect of debt, see if you agree…
“The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is a slave to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7
We will be discussing “Faith and Finance” this month at Portico Church. We would love for you to be our guest as we dive into the wisdom of the Word of God to learn how we can better manage the finances in our lives.
