It was the recipe for a great book. Our guest and his wife—both financial experts—had cut their income by 80% to pursue more meaningful lives. Within six years they had two kids, were debt-free, went on several vacations, and doubled their net worth. He was ready to share the biblical principles that made this possible. But he couldn’t. After reviewing Scripture’s teaching on money—over 1,300 verses—he realized he had missed something big. Join us as we turn conventional wisdom on its head while answering practical questions like does Jesus want me to be rich or poor? Should I give to everybody who asks? Is it wrong to save? And more.
Jesus' call to "follow me" was not just an invitation to faith; it was a prescription for living well. Our guest will explore Jesus' teachings of hope, life, truth, freedom, humility, greatness, and glory while walking through the seven "follow me" statements in the Gospel of Matthew. Although following Jesus is not a new concept to believers, following Jesus completely becomes difficult when life moves faster and faster. Join us as our guest reveals a biblical plan to revitalize your life in as little as seven days.
