Resources: Money and Giving

Should I get out of debt first before I give beyond my tithe?

While getting out of debt is a high biblical priority it is as much a wisdom issue as a righteousness one, and requires discernment and good strategy not just a single act of obedience.

Should I tithe on gifts and even scholarship money I receive?

Should I tithe or pay off my debt first? (video)

I came across your book, Money Possessions & Eternity about three years ago and have read it cover to cover twice, each time learning and applying it to my life. I have also read The Treasure Principle and have facilitated two small group studies on the book.

My stepdaughter recently graduated from a small private Christian college. She always thought I was nuts when I talked about how money is nothing more than a test here on earth and ...

Can we really earn eternal rewards?

I did use the word “earn” in a few places in my books Money, Possessions and Eternity and In Light of Eternity. But in its context in both books I used “earn” in the sense of a Christ-empowered obedience resulting in God graciously granting us the rewards he promises.
