12/13 - Co-Signing

Money - Crown Devotion - Tue, 12/13/2011 - 01:00
Cosigning means to pledge your assets against the debts of someone else. Scripture specifically forbids this when it speaks of surety or striking of hands. Christians cosign either out of ignorance of what God's Word teaches or out of misguided conviction and guilt. "He who is surety for a stranger will surely suffer for it, but he who hates going surety is safe." (Proverbs 11:15 NASB).

12/11 - Give Your Spending Habits to God

Money - Crown Devotion - Sun, 12/11/2011 - 01:00
Put all spending under God's control. With God's guidance, any bad habit can be broken. "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang." (1 Timothy 6:10 NASB).

12/10 - Investing and Leverage

Money - Crown Devotion - Sat, 12/10/2011 - 01:00
When investing, avoid the use of leverage--the ability to control a large asset with a relatively small investment. If you buy property for $10,000 and pay $1,000 down, that's a nine-to-one lever. You invested 10 percent of your money and borrowed 90 percent. Borrowing money to invest is not a scriptural principle. "Do not be among those who give pledges, among those who become sureties for debts. If you have nothing with which to pay, Why should he take your bed from under you?."

Money - Crown Devotion - Sat, 11/12/2011 - 01:00
Too much spending can rob surplus funds, but too little is self-punishment. "These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence." (Colossians 2:23 NASB).
