Should I Share My Financial Details With Others? I answered that question on this episode of Real Truth. Real Quick.
- When there is something we want, it always makes us better when we invite others in.
- You should share your financial details with others who are wise and who fear the Lord.
- It is easy to believe the lie that more money is the key to more happiness.
- The question to ask is not “how much money do you have?” Rather ask, “how much does money have you?”
- Your financial advisor having the same faith as you is exponentially more important than them having the same funds as you.
- Materialism is not typically the function of an amount, it is an attitude of the heart.
- Jesus talked about money more than matters of faith and prayer because He knew our hearts could get wrapped up in money.
- If there is something Jesus talked about a lot that we are not willing to discuss with others, that is a problem.
