God’s word has a lot to say about finances, in fact, there are more than 2,300 verses in the Bible on the topics of money and possessions!

God did not leave us alone to fight all the financial pressures and challenges we face without His wise guidance and trustworthy principles.

Dear Chuck,

My husband and I are talking about starting a family, and to be honest, I’m afraid to do it. We have the usual bills and some credit card debt, and whenever I see stories about how expensive kids can be, I feel so intimidated. I saw a story recently that said it cost “between $12,350 and nearly $14,000 a year, on average, to raise a child.” What do you think we should do?

Dear Preparing,

Your question raises a truly important conflict that we as Christians face: the tension between a worldly perspective and a Biblical perspective, and children are a perfect case in point. The Bible clearly teaches us that children are a blessing. Psalm 127:3-5 put it like this: “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”

Dear Chuck, 

I read that Donald Trump will be the richest president ever to take office, and that his cabinet, which is made up of a lot of successful businessmen and women, will also be the wealthiest group ever assembled. Do you think that is a problem? The Bible talks so much about riches; is that kind of money an issue? With all the animosity discussed toward the “one percent,” should we be suspicious of rich people?

Wrestling with Riches

Dear Wrestling,

I like your question and will give a broad answer, but as President Trump is being sworn into office today, I urge all of us to pray for him and his team.
