Avoid Making BIG Financial Mistakes…Here\’s How!

by Lee Jenkins

Have you ever bought a house you couldn\’t afford; spent money on stuff you didn\’t nee; made investments that wiped you out? Welcome to the club! We\’ve all made financial mistakes. Below are four questions that can act as “filters” to help you make smart money moves.

Question #1
IS IT GOD OR IS IT ME?
Ask yourself, does God want me to have this house, car, clothes, new church building, big fat mortgage, etc. or is it just something I want? If your desire is motivated by God, you\’ll have peace; if it is motivated by the flesh, don\’t buy it.

Question #2
IS IT SCRIPTURAL?
Exaggerating our income to get a loan, overcharging someone so you can make more money, selling a product you know is inferior, or sleeping with the boss to get a raise is not scriptural!

Question #3
IS IT WISE?
There\’s a thin line between faith and foolishness. A man once told me that God told him to quit his job, even though he had four kids and a wife to support, now savings and no other source of income. He said, “Lee, whatcha think?” I responded, “ You have lost your mind.

QUESTION #4
IS IT ALRIGHT WITH PEOPLE I TRUST?
Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” What does your spouse, pastor, or best friend think about it? We all have “blind spots.” That\’s why it\’s al- ways good to run major financial decisions by someone else

Bottom line…if a decision fails to make it through one of these four “filters,” you should question whether it is really from God.
