Do you have month left over at the end of your money? Maybe a side job would help make ends meet. For a little extra income, there are plenty of part time gigs you could do, and some that you shouldn't. If you're strapped for cash,you might try anything to bring in just a bit more. However, the Bible is clear that followers of Christ must practice total honesty. MoneyWise host Rob West shares examples of an honest and dishonest ways to make money. We serve a God Who is always honest and faithful it only makes sense that He would demand that of us. 2 Timothy 2:15 leaves no wiggle room: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.And 2 Corinthians 8:21 says, for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man. Some things may be legal but are dishonest by Gods standards. For example, did you know that you can sell your favorable credit history? There are companies that help you add complete strangers as authorized users on your credit card. One honest way to earn extra cash is by reselling consumer goods and appliances. Granted, you have to be pretty good at finding deals for this one to work, but if you have a knack for it, you can turn it into cash. How are some side-gigs more honest than others? One of them has you doing honest work as the middle man, using your own time and skills to find deals, making them available to the end user. The original seller is happy to get the item off his hands, you make a profit, and then the end user is happy to get the item at a mutually agreed on price. It's a win-win-win.
