Turning the World Right-Side Up, Part 1

Imagine a world where the devil isn’t allowed to deceivea place where the righteous reign and God is glorified. Listen in as Pastor Chuck Swindoll explains from Revelation 20: 110 how an upside-down world, sick with sin, is turned right-side up. Like the garden of Eden before the fall, the world temporarily becomes tranquil and harmonious. Yet fragile human nature is still on display when the reprieve ends. Contemplate what abundant life in Christ really means, and determine to serve Christ, whose plans for you are always good!

God’s Economy vs. Man’s Economy with Sharon Epps

Is Jesus Lord of all your affairs, or is there still one part of your life where you insist on being “in charge? ”That one area, all too often, is money. We all have to make a decision. Will we live in God’s economy or man’s? Sharon Epps is here today to help us understand the difference. Sharon Epps is the president of Kingdom Advisors, FaithFi’s parent organization. Kingdom Advisors serves the broad Christian financial industry by educating and equipping professionals to integrate biblical wisdom and financial expertise. Being "In the World" but Not "Of the World"Oswald Chambers once said, "Our Lord did not teach detachment from other things: He taught attachment to Himself. " Jesus was not a recluse; He was deeply involved in everyday life but lived according to Kingdom values, not the world’s. Larry Burkett also noted that few Christians understand the devastation caused by the misuse of money. Those who embrace God’s financial plan stand out, while many struggle within the world’s economic system. Man’s economy is characterized by frustrations, worries, and anxieties, affecting many Christians as much as non-believers. Sharon highlights that the constant drive for more, as described in Psalm 4: 6-8, contrasts sharply with the contentment found in God’s economy. Key Differences Between God’s Economy and Man’s EconomyIn God’s economy, He is the master, providing everything, including our ability to earn money (Deuteronomy 8: 18). In man’s economy, money becomes the master, regardless of how much one has. God is the source of our income in His economy, whereas, in man’s economy, people often claim, "I earned it. " Recognizing God as the source fosters humility and gratitude. In God’s economy, wealth is given to help others and advance His Kingdom. Man’s economy views wealth as a means to live independently and insulate oneself from life’s problems. The Role of MoneyMoney’s purpose is to fulfill God’s plans. In contrast, man’s economy sees money as a safeguard against potential issues, leading to constant fear and a sense of never having enough. In God’s economy, we are trustworthy stewards of temporarily given resources, guided by biblical principles. In man’s economy, the focus is on personal fulfillment and happiness. Success in God’s economy is defined by faithfulness to His principles, leaving the outcome to God. Man’s economy measures success by achievements an.networth, often leading to feelings of failure if goals aren’t met. What Drives Us? God’s economy promises eternal rewards, with the ultimate affirmation being, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" (Matthew 25: 23). Man’s economy values earthly gains, which cannot be taken beyond this life. In God’s economy, our significance comes from being a child of God. Man’s economy ties worth to work, riches, and power, offering little lasting joy. In God’s economy, we are driven by His glory and fame. Man’s economy motivates us through personal significance and security. Living in God’s economy brings contentment in all circumstances, trusting God is in control and will provide. In man’s economy, emotional states are volatile and dependent on financial success or failure. Living in God’s economy brings peace, purpose, and joy, contrasting sharply with the anxiety and instability of man’s economy. On Today’s Program, Rob Answers Listener Questions: How does Social Security work if I draw from my ex-spouse's retirement? I was married for 19 years and have not remarried yet. Will taking my ex-spouse's benefit affect what they receive? When would be the right time for me to contact Social Security about claiming this benefit? I work with a ministry called Men of Valor that helps men coming out of incarceration to reenter society. One of the significant challenges we see is that once these men start earning an income, it can be difficult for them to manage their money and avoid overspending. I've heard you talk in the past about budgeting apps and wanted to know if there is something our men could use on their phones to help divide up their paychecks for expenses like rent, food, giving, and other necessities. Can you recommend anything that might work well for this purpose?
