Seek Godly Advice

Seeking Godly advice on money and financial stewardship.The Bible has over 2300 verses that discuss money and financial stewardship. Scripture relating to debt, investing, giving, and sin is found throughout the gospels. God knew we would struggle with stewardship and the amount of instruction on money management within the Bible is proof of this. With money being such an important topic, I find that the trend of investing online with Robo Advisors and cheap online stock trades alarming. People become very confident in their investing abilities during bull market runs and under confident when a correction or recession occurs. At no time does the act of obedient stewardship come into play as people avoid the use of God honoring advisors and do it themselves through online opportunities. Would you perform brain surgery on yourself? Would you self-diagnose a cancer and treat yourself without expert advice? Why is the most discussed topic in scripture any different? Avoiding using counsel to help you align your beliefs with management of God’s assets is poor stewardship. Tax planning and estate planning are no different. Avoid the cheap alternatives that are offered online and pursue professional, God Honoring advise. It is important to avoid worldview advisors, tax professionals, and attorneys. Seek those advisors that understand obedience to God is the first criteria to be met. What does scripture say about using or seeking advice?

Proverbs 15:22 Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

Proverbs 12:15 The way of the fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

Proverbs 28:26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.
