7  Steps To Take Right Before You Retire, Accepted By God

You are accepted by God. How many times do we embark on a new endeavor but we forget that changes need to be made? I often find that people will take a new position and or decide to retire, but have not made a decision about their financial future. In order to start planning for retirement, you must ask yourself these important questions in order to prepare yourself for what lies ahead.

According to recent studies “more than half of workers older than 55 haven’t developed a plan for paying themselves in retirement” “Many people wait until they’ve set their retirement date to put together any kind of  plan at all.” Here are a few issues that you must consider before you enter into retirement. Continue reading

Your financial future is much like your walk with God. We must accept that we are placed on the earth to fulfill God’s purpose for our lives. We must be accountable for our actions and the impact we have on the lives of others. “Of course, the Bible tells us that the whole church is obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 5:24) “Regardless of one’s position, everybody is accountable to somebody.” “And this holds true for the entire family of faith, from the congregation to the minister to Jesus Himself, who serves God the Father.”

As we continue to make provisions for our financial lives, we must ensure that our faith walk with God is our top priority as we continue to plan for our future.

The Busy Woman’s Blueprint For Becoming A Savvy Investor, Tithe Your Resources

Have you ever signed a contract for a partnership and later realized it was a bad agreement? Today, there are many start ups and entrepreneurs seeking to build products and platforms in order to move our country forward. What are some tools and techniques we can utilize to produce wealth and still ensure that we tithe our resources?

What is a tithe?

  • A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord. (Leviticus 27:30)

If you are new investor, one thing you can do to continue to grow your financial empire is to ensure that you “read something about money daily.” “It does not matter if it’s just for a minute or two, even if you only glance at the headlines of the business section of the newspaper, or flip through a money magazine while waiting in line at the grocery.” In order to become financially savvy you must educate yourself so you will be able to make sound financial decisions.

It does not matter how much income you produce, when we tithe our resources and give back to God what belongs to Him, we are demonstrating that we trust Him with our lives and our financial well-being and we are honoring Him for what He has done and continues to do in our lives.
