Budgeting

A budget is simply a tool to forecast and track your income and expenses. Budgeting is actually a Biblical concept. Consider Luke 14:28:  “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower.

Do you love your job? I don’t know about you, but I love working. Unfortunately statistics shows that most people don’t feel the same way. In fact, I’ve read one statistic recently that suggested that 16% of people would leave their job tomorrow if they could (that is somewhat a depressing thought). I love what the Old Testament says about work, “So I saw that there is nothing better to people than to be happy in their work.” – Ecclesiastes…

A lesson from the ant and his money

“Whoever is slothful will not roast his game, but the diligent man will get precious wealth” (Proverbs 12:27 ESV) The Scripture describes diligence as man’s precious possession. Why do you think is this so? Being successful in career, in business and life in general requires more than just talent, intelligence and wisdom, it takes hard work and persistence. It requires diligence. Diligence, according to the Oxford Universal Dictionary, is “careful attention, industry, assiduity; unremitting application, persistent endeavor.” It is the…

What does true generosity looks like? Most of us naturally tend to think that they are reasonably generous. In fact I’m yet to meet anyone that says, “Hey I’m really stingy!”. But are we really generous? And to that matter, what does true generosity really look like? Let’s start by considering the greatest act of generosity that we know. The bible says (in John 3:16) that “God so love the world that He gave His one and only son”, for you and…

In the early years of the 21st century, Donald Rumsfeld (the former secretary of defense of the United States), was being asked during a media briefing about “how the war in the middle east was going”. His response was very interesting, he said “there are known knowns."

There are many aspects of our society today that have become so normal, that we don’t often question it. But as Christians, it’s vital that we reflect on our society (and reflect on what we consider to be normal) in line of what God’s word actually says on a particular issue. Surprisingly, the Bible is virtually silent on retirement. In biblical times, and in fact for most history, you work until you drop. However, today retirement speaks as a kind…
