Series: Money Issues Bible Study
Discernment and spiritual growth happen as you evaluate what God wants you to do.
Committed Christians hold down jobs just like their friends and neighbors and just like their friends and neighbors, we sometimes have a problem earning enough money to meet basic needs. But we also may face the question, Am I meeting God s ends? Sometimes these questions surface when we cannot pay our bills, set aside money for our children s education, or buy a home. The questions can present themselves when we face a cut in pay, pressure increases at the workplace, or we do not pursue the opportunities in front of us to start a business that we really enjoy. We have a number of choices when we discover that our job won t make ends meet. This study will look at those choices and our need for guidance from God, experts, and others who have successfully navigated through tough times.
