On today’s episode we discuss NFL Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers Dwayne Haskins being killed by a truck. Mark Wahlberg has a new movie Stu, how Having a Christian Worldview Directly Impacts How Young People Manage Their Money, this, and many more Christian news updates on this episodes of Financial Advisors Say The Darndest Things.
Let’s get into the topics of the day:
On Saturday NFL Quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed after being hit by a truck while walking on a South Florida highway.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said, “I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins, “He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community. Dwayne was a great teammate, but even more so a tremendous friend to so many. I am truly heartbroken.”
Decision magazine reported that Haskins liked “to quote Jeremiah 29:11; Joshua 1:9; Philippians 4:13, and closest to his heart, he says, is Isaiah 12:2: “Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation" (NIV).
He is also quoted as saying.
“I want to use my platform, use my place in this world right now as a way to benefit and inspire others, and give back to the community, and be someone that they look up to,” Haskins said. “That is something I feel like God would want for me to do.”
He truly will be missed.
Mark Wahlberg has a new movie called STU . where he plays the character Stuart Long, a former boxer turned priest.
In a recent interview with CBN news Wahlberg who is now a believer explains how bad cancel culture is, and how we need to do better as a society as he states the following Now a believer, Wahlberg has experienced redemption in his personal life and believes our culture could benefit from equal doses of grace and forgiveness.
“This movie has a very clear message that we are not going to give up on people,” he said. “We are not going to turn our backs on people because of mistakes that they’ve made. We are going to tell people and encourage people that nobody is beyond redemption and that we support you, we love you, we accept you for who you are.”
Part of why cancel culture is so toxic is because, as Wahlberg said, “there’s nothing worse than when somebody realizes that people don’t care,” because it causes them to “lose hope and have no faith.”
“You cannot give up on people,” the A-lister continued. “And people are so quick to turn their backs on people. And negativity as a whole has just been amplified in a way that it’s really hard to remind people of the importance of loving and supporting people. People can do incredible things.”
Having a Christian Worldview Directly Impacts How Young People Manage Their Money,
Amanda Casanova reports that a study done by Lifeway Research and Adelfi concludes that how Christians see the world affects how they manage their money. And shows that Christians ages 25-40 give nearly 3 times as much as their non-Christian counterparts.
Definitely, a systematic contribution of tithes and offering will definitely cause that number to be skewed but it makes sense none the less.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Wild inflation will hurt all financial assets, market researcher Jim Bianco warns.
In an article written by Stephanie Landsman, Jim Bianco, president of Bianco Research turned bearish on stocks late last year, primarily due to inflation risks. He blames the Fed for waiting too long to end its pandemic easy money policies and lift interest rates.
“The call last year that inflation would be well-contained and transitory is arguably one of the worst forecasts in Federal Reserve history,” said Bianco. “They are now stuck with this ultra-aggressive policy because they didn’t start raising rates at a very leisurely pace a year ago.”
I’ve said this once and I will say it again, everything balances out in the end. Those stimulus checks came with a price and we will be paying that price going forward. Even now we are experiencing it one gas station fill up and grocery trip at a time.
At this point, there is no need to cry over spilled milk, just buckle down and focus on being disciplined and faithful.

We are dedicated to helping you become cheerful givers by organizing your personal finances, providing investment tips to help you create wealth, and encouraging you to create a gifting strategy that will make your family and God proud.
