If anything can be learned from the realization that financial literacy doesn’t improve responsibility, it’s that information itself isn’t enough. Wisdom—the application of knowledge—can only be executed through a real shift in perspective.
Stewardship is about so much more than budgeting.
Ambassador Advisors wants to ensure that through our program, Finding Significance, Christians will be equipped with practical resources to manage the finances that God has entrusted to them.
Psalm 24:1 offers a profound reminder: “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it. The world and its inhabitants belong to the Lord.”
Nothing is exempt—all things are under the sovereignty and ownership of God. Our finances are blessings—a good gift—from the God who provides for us.
When we change our perspective about how we handle finances, it involves a choice of personal conviction, which is far more compelling than information alone.
When we begin to view ourselves as stewards rather than owners, we can begin to experience true financial freedom.
