"Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:21)
A man in his 50s who made a good income realized he had squandered the last 10 years when it came to good financial planning.
"Wait a minute-God's going to hold me accountable [for my money management]," he finally realized. After participating in the Rock Church Financial Ministry, the man learned to ask himself, "Am I storing up treasures in heaven?"
A couple owned a home plus a rental house, and carried two mortgages. They realized they were falling behind in their payments and were tempted to default on one of their mortgages.
After learning God's principles in the Rock Church Financial Ministry classes, they learned that defaulting would be stealing from the bank. They sold their rental house at a loss instead of defaulting.
A 65-year-old woman asked David Wessels, leader of the Financial Ministry, what to do because she had run out of money.
Unfortunately, he couldn't help her. She should have attended Wessels class, "Adopting God's Principles for Handling Money" before she got into trouble.
Maybe you should too.
The next series of classes runs from February 13 through March 20, 2009. Please sign up online by clicking here. Or call Danielle at 619-764-5123.
The Rock Finance Ministry exists to help the members of the Rock learn to handle money and possessions from a biblical perspective.
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Wessels developed a passion for biblical finance after seeing how lacking friends and acquaintances were in this area. He approached the Rock staff in 2004 to start a Financial Ministry, and began teaching classes in February 2005. He estimates he has now taught 2,500 to 3,000 people so far.
He has also built a group of 12 people who do one-on-one financial counseling.
He shared with me that today's American Christian often has problems with how they handle treasure. The love of money can easily place a person into bondage.
It's "not how much you got but what you do with what you got," he shared. "The stress of money problems, you don't have when you go biblical."
