Marriage And Finances

Finances in marriage can often cause arguments. How do we remain honest and fair with our spouses as we handle the pressures of making and spending money?

Gambling is such a widely accepted entertainment activity, is it really sinful before God? How does gambling affect us and the growing of God’s kingdom?

Is Gambling Sinful?

I’ve seen people’s lives destroyed by gambling. It ruins their financial lives and a lot of the relationships they have around them.

“Now first of all, think about how God wants us to grow in wealth. It’s a win-win system that is based on exchange of things of inherent value. So, if I am a baker, and you are a barber, when I get money from my baking and I give it to you for a haircut, both of us have been enriched, it is a win-win situation. There is value creation and there’s value exchange.”
