A New Perspective

Posted In: General

In order to experience life changes, we need to experience perspective changes, specifically in the area of finances.

 

Ambassador Advisors offers the educational series Finding Significance to explore significant topics such as managing risk with insurance, college and retirement planning, estate and legacy planning, and investments. But rather than merely sharing information, Finding Significance aims to promote biblical stewardship that leads to financial freedom.

 

Knowing about finances cannot inspire a behavior change—but practical tools to manage those resources can lead to an increased awareness of stewardship.

 

Poor money decisions can be the result of ignorance or irresponsibility, but education coupled with a real change in perspective can make all the difference.

 

Deuteronomy 8:18 reminds us, “Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth…”

 

All that we have is from the Lord, and He is the One who causes us to prosper. Therefore, we must seek to honor Him in all areas of our life—especially with the blessings that He graciously provides.

 

This shift in perspective must be conscious and intentional. Otherwise, it is all too easy to slip back into poor money management habits.
