Re-FinanceBible Study Book includes a small group experience for six sessions, applicable Scripture, key word study, and a life application section called “Live It Out.”
Our attitudes about money and how we use it reveal so much about our character, priorities, and commitment to God. Decisions about money can bring couples and families together and many times pull them apart. The ancient wisdom of the Old Testament gives great direction for modern money management. Financial decisions should be made under the lordship of Christ and the direction of His Holy Spirit. We are to give generously to the work of Christ through His church. And a strong work ethic can be a great testimony to a believer’s commitment to Christ and that believer’s desire to honor Christ in all things.
How we handle our personal finances and assets communicate to a lost world where our true priorities are. If the Bible takes money seriously, shouldn’t we? This study of the wisdom in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes is a call to action for spiritual growth in the area of finances and giving.
