Being Proactive vs. Reactive

Proactive vs. ReactiveDefinition of being proactive versus reactive. There is a difference between being a subscriber of a service to being an owner of a company providing that service. As a subscriber, we can choose to avoid those things that are contrary to our beliefs. An example is subscribing to Netflix and choosing to watch family oriented programming and avoiding watching programs that are sexually explicit, show nudity and violence. If you have internet service, you can choose to avoid pornography and use the internet service to research scripture. It is all in the hands of the subscriber and how they use those services. If you own shares of a company that provide internet services or programming, you may be profiting from those things you disagree with. As a shareholder you can be proactive and voice your opinion to shareholder services or vote on key issues. Ultimately, you can divest yourself of those companies you own that profit from and support those activities that are contrary. It is a question of being proactive versus being reactive. Many times, it is an ownership issue.

Difficult Topics of a Financial Plan

We, as responsible stewards, must be prepared for the unexpected.Creating a financial plan isn’t simply talking about investing. A financial plan has many moving parts that can and will change over your lifetime. There are topics within the financial plan that people like to discuss and there are issues that people avoid because of the sensitivity to the topic. Death is one of those subjects that people avoid, especially when discussing the potential loss of a child. Avoiding the subject does not prevent the devastating possibility from happening. We, as responsible stewards, must be prepared for the unexpected.

The Dangers of Insolvency

An alarming trend that I see as a financial planner is the high number of Christians who’s estate would be insolvent at death.An alarming trend that I see as a financial planner is the high number of Christians who’s estate would be insolvent at death. Insolvency is when your you owe more than what you are worth. I also see a larger number of people accumulating debt past the age of 65. These issues have the strong potential to leave a disaster for you loved ones. Simple planning based on God’s word can lead us out of the quicksand before it becomes a devastating financial issue after you have moved on to your eternal home.

Revolutionary Stewardship

Financial Stewardship is meaningless without that eternal perspective and how it guides us through the decisions we make. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, King Soloman observed and journaled many things pertaining to the seasons of our lives. His conclusion was that everything is meaningless without God’s eternal perspective he has placed in our heart. Financial Stewardship is meaningless without that eternal perspective and how it guides us through the decisions we make.
