[ EPUB ] ☩ Your Money Counts: The Biblical Guide to Earning, Spending, Saving, Investing, Giving, and Getting Out of Debt ♸ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

This is a very good book from Crown Ministries that outlined biblically based money advice In particular, I thought the advice on teaching your children about money was very helpful It encouraged readers to empower children with allowances early to learn to manage money by saving, giving and spending It also encouraged parents to share family financial information around the age of 12 so parents exposed their children to their own financial choices By the mid to late teens, kids would be responsible for handling all their own expenses except room and board How the kids received the money was not discussed I think it would depend on the child If the child benefited from a job, he could earn the money or a fair portion If the child struggled to keep up in school, I guess the parents would give the child enough money for expenses like clothes, entertainment, car insurance and the child would pay for it out of his own account I walked into the world with absolutely no training on how to manage finances and payed dearly for my ignorance so I really appreciated an approach that empowered the child to succeed or fail while still in the nest. Occasionally helpful on the topic of finances when it ventures past the basics Often regressive when it attempts theology, which is a very large portion of the book If you re looking for financial advice, you can find it better organized and succinctly with a Google search. If you re looking for motivation to get out of debt from a non Christian perspective, then I would suggest going with Dave Ramsey s Total Money Makeover However, if you are looking to see what the Bible says about money and your character, and how to apply these principles, I would recommend this book. Really liked this book lay down a clear explanation of foundational financial principles while also giving you the Biblical background of why it s important to do it with God as your base.

This was an excellent book I like his illustration on P 76 comparing the currency of this world to Confederate currency, when the end of the war was close, and it was obvious the North would win For us to accumulate vast earthly treasures in the face of the inevitable future is the equivalent to stockpiling confederate money The only currency of value in heaven is our present service and generous giving to God s kingdom And the quote on p 144, People buy things they don t need with money they do not have to impress people they do not even like. This book is in the same family as any Dave Ramsey book It gives general principles as opposed to focused advice I appreciated the Biblical basis for all of the points that Dayton showed Money is one of the most talked about topics in the Bible and in every day life It makes sense that Christians should put much time and effort to live their financial lives with a Biblical and eternal perspective This books helps to do that.
