Your personal faith in God should affect your overall financial situation throughout your life. Jesus, in His parables and other teachings in the Bible, uses financial references more than He discusses heaven and hell combined. No doubt, financial issues are an important part of our approach to how we spend our time here on earth.
The subjects of faith and Heaven and eternity can provide some helpful answers in making financial decisions, both as an individual and as a family member. It is amazing how your thoughts about these subjects can have a dramatic impact on the decisions you make throughout your career and as you develop your financial and legacy plans. No matter what your age or stage in life, these issues can apply to you now (Please refer to The Giving Alliance section of this website.)
The issue of Heaven and eternity must be faced by everyone. Death is, of course, inevitable. Your approach to death and your faith should affect decisions that you make while living here on earth. Regardless of our financial success in planning, the products we choose to use and the money that we save, we can’t take it with us! Our view regarding living this earthly life as opposed to the length of time that eternity represents makes our decisions vitally important.
You are responsible for planning not only your future, but that of others who are important to you.
I would like to recommend a book which I am offering to you free of charge. It is The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn, whose message is discovering the secret of joyful giving. This book offers many references both to the question of giving and questions about Heaven and eternity (Mr. Alcorn is also the author of the consummate book on Heaven, which is used as the primary reference to the subject of heaven by most pastors throughout the world. It is a great reference for anyone who wanted to explore the subject in detail.)
If you would like a free copy of The Treasure Principle, please email me at email@example.com requesting the book.
