Why and How We Save

Faith & Finance (formerly MoneyWise)

Christian talk radio with Rob West

The Human Genome Project revealed many fascinating facts about human makeup, but it did not uncover a saving gene. This means that saving is not an innate behavior, but rather something we must learn. Rob West explains why saving is so important and how to do it. Surveys show that less than half of Americans can handle an unexpected expense of $1,000, and the Bible encourages us to save. Proverbs 10:4-5 reads, “A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. He who gathers in summer is a prudent son.” God is our ultimate Provider and He will meet our needs, but He also expects us to save. To start, we need a spending plan and must be willing to cut spending in some areas. We should also make a resolution to save something from every paycheck and set a goal for the amount we want to save. Additionally, we should pray for self-control and a contented heart. With these steps, we can develop the habit of saving and improve our lives, relationships, and ability to serve God.
