“The purpose in a man's heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.” Proverbs 20:5 Man’s ultimate purpose is to glorify God, but deciding how we do that can be a challenge. Sometimes we need help from a trusted advisor. We’ll talk about that with Rachel McDonough.
Rachel McDonough is a Certified Financial Planner anda Certified Kingdom Advisor. And lately, she's been deep in thought about Proverbs 20:5 and how it relates to fulfilling our purpose in life with our financial decisions.
- All Christians would like to honor God with the way they use the resources He’s given them, but sometimes it’s difficult to find the right path for that.
- McDonough shares that our culture makes it difficult. There’s so much in our culture that makes us think it’s all about us. We ask, “What are my financial goals?” But if that’s our starting point, it’s almost like: Ready, fire, aim!
- But it’s wise to take a step back and think through a more biblical framework for how we should determine those financial goals.
- The thing that is your treasure will control your heart. And what controls your heart will control your words, your behaviors, and your decisions. The place to start is with your HEART, our values, and priorities as believers.
- McDonough encourages listeners to take a step back and think through the foundation of our values and priorities first, and then choose specific financial goals that give us the right target to be aiming toward.
- Turning to a Christian adviser can help you think through those factors.
- Of course, this is why Kingdom Advisors exists, to train a dedicated group of professionals with the CKA designation … to come alongside side believers and help them find their purpose.
