A Vision For Personal Finance

What does the Bible say when it comes to integrating stewardship into a personal financial plan? That’s the crux of this six-part series on personal finances. An abridged version of the series originally appeared in the April 2001 issue of COMMAND magazine.

While some of the specific examples in this series may not be updated according to the latest tax codes or financial data and markets, the principles of stewardship and personal finance still hold true today. The advice and insight in these articles alone should not be used to make personal financial and investment decisions. Always consult a financial advisor or accounting professional before making any decisions with regards to your personal finances and investments.
