Handling Money God’s Way
Scott and Christina's Story
April 20, 2016
Scott and Christina had been doing well financially due to their rental real estate business until September 11th dramatically changed their lives. Due to lower interest rates, many of their tenants were able to buy homes, leaving Scott and Christina with less than enough money each month.
When Scott heard an advertisement about a Christian financial conference on the radio, and decided to attend, his journey of giving his money and finances over to God really began. He decided to move forward and to ask his wife to join him in going to classes that would help them learn how to manage their money God’s way.
Even though it was a struggle for them, they were determined to be obedient. They began to see things turn around in their business, and God provided what they needed when they needed it.
However, when their card was declined at the grocery, and they knew they had no resources left, Scott realized the last thing that he hadn’t surrendered to God regarding their finances – his business.
"I hadn’t given up my business. I still thought that I had to control that, that I had to work harder and to work smarter to get out of this. And I was tired."
Their surrender to God financially impacted their entire lives, and they found that there is blessing in obedience and that God can be trusted..
