Podcast Episode #335

Art Rainer joins us to talk about generosity and money matters related to his new book The Money Challenge.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • God has designed us not as hoarders but as conduits through which His generosity flows.
  • Debt cripples your ability to live generously.
  • Pastors are often hesitant to preach on finances as a way to avoid conflict that may result.
  • When we give, we should have an eternal perspective for our sacrifice.
  • When we are financially healthy, we have a greater ability to be generous for the Kingdom.
  • Social media has made “keeping up with the Joneses” exponentially worse.
  • Give generously. Save Wisely. Live Appropriately.
