    Endgame

    Tim:
    They say that all good things must come to an end. We hope and pray that the Faith and Finances Podcast has been “good” to you, that the Christ-focused financial teaching has blessed and encouraged you.
     
    Troy:
    In 1965, The Byrd's (can't these guys spell?) popularized the message of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 in their hyper-creatively titled song, "Turn! Turn! Turn!".
    The message is one of seasons—beginnings and endings. For every beginning, the Bible teaches us that there must also be an ending.
    That truth brings us to the final episode of the Faith and Finances Podcast.
     
    Our Farewells: Tim:
    We are so thankful that you have chosen to listen to this Podcast. We have endeavored to bring valuable content and honor the Lord in every episode.
    I will be focusing my time and energy on my writing and live teaching endeavors. You can stay in touch, and receive my devotional writings on the subject of biblical finances by visiting www.TimRosen.org and providing your e-mail address.
    You can also learn where I am teaching the Faith and Finances sessions by visiting the ministry Facebook or Instagram (see links below).
     
    Troy:
    Tim and I have enjoyed our time with you during these few years of podcasting. Both of us are now entering seasons of life that demand a bit more of our time than in the past.
    I'm blessed with 2 godly teenagers, but they are teenagers nonetheless and require more of my time than ever before.
    Katrina and I have gone back to serving as Care Group Leaders after a 1-2 year break and that also requires time.
    On the work front, I'm currently building an online training system for our new hires and helping with the NeuroStar international expansion efforts.
    I suspect that Tim and I will share a microphone or video camera at some point in the future. We both enjoy each other and those mediums.
    But until then, dear listener… God bless.

    Having Financial Integrity [Replay]

    Having Financial Integrity [Replay]

    I talk with my family frequently about the quality of food (or junk) that we put in our bodies. Yet there are times when I would see an amazing-looking dessert (just Google "Monster shakes") and all of a sudden I'm now telling my family how awesome this thing looks and that we ought to try it!
    That is not integrity!
    The healthy talk is somewhat recent in my life, but the junk food temptations stem from decades of bad habits.
     
    In This Episode, We Look At:
    Deep seeded bad habits and bad behavior do not suddenly disappear overnight. This applies to financial habits and behaviors as well.
    You cannot dig yourself out of a 20, 30, or 40-year hole in just weeks or months.
    Financial integrity means handling money in a manner consistent with your beliefs—and words.
    Listen as we provide an Integrity self-test for Christians.
     
    Improve Your Faith and Finances:
    Saturate yourself in God's Word, seeking to learn what is acceptable, and then practice awareness of your own thoughts, words, and deeds.

    The Simple Rules of Financial Health

    The Simple Rules of Financial Health

    Most of us are repelled by rules thrown at us.
    There’s a bit of a maverick in all of us, preferring “our way.”
    Just as there are laws of nature, there are laws in personal finance.
    They really do sound simple, yet simple is often enough.
    We are going to list the Simple Rules/Laws and teach you how to implement them.
     
    Save Be aware of cash flow Avoid consumer debt

    Practically Loving Others

    Practically Loving Others

    As Christ-followers, we are commanded to love others (see Matthew 22:37-40).
    That's a tall order.
    How much do we love ourselves?
     
    In This Episode, We Look At: Love in action: With neighbors- demonstrate Christ-likeness.
    With our enemies.
    With family and the body of Christ.
     
    Improve Your Faith and Finances: As Christ loved us unconditionally so are we to love others-unconditionally. Demonstrate that love, and also give, as giving is an act of love

    3 Keys to Joyful Christmas Shopping

    3 Keys to Joyful Christmas Shopping

    We all see the ads and the Hallmark movies this time of year. We see happy, joyful people shopping for their loved ones and enjoying bountiful Christmas dinners. In reality, do we display such joy and happiness in the marketplace while shopping for our loved ones? Why not?
     
    In This Episode, We Look At: Three keys to a joyful Christmas shopping season.
    First: Determine to keep your family's focus on the meaning of Christmas. If the primary focus is the buying and giving of gifts, you're doing it wrong.
    Second: Determine a budget for Christmas related spending (including food). We cover some tips here in the episode.
    Third: Be intentional to spread joy and the love of Christ to others.
    Consider how other people feel as they work long hours at the stores this season, trying to tolerate impatient, rude, and belligerent customers. What difference can you make by offering a genuine smile and a "Thank you for working."

    Improve Your Faith and Finances: Schedule time to read the true Christmas story from Scripture this season. Luke 2, Matthew 2, and Isaiah 9 are wonderful places to start.

Good clean fun around faith and finances

I'm always on the hunt for great shows about money - and this one ties together with my faith as well. The comradery between Tim and Troy is wonderful, and their occasional jabs at each other keeps it lively.

You won't be beaten over the head with a Bible with this show, but you will be exposed to the truth found in the scriptures. Thanks for making this fun guys!
