In the book of James 2:1-4- It reads My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool, have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives? Many listeners may cheer this statement and say, "Yes!"
We should not distinguish between the two, we are all equal in the eyes of God. But let me ask you?
In your pursuit of righteousness, have you chosen the poor man and told him to sit in a good place, and told the rich man, you stand over there, or side down by my footstool? In most cases, we have shunned the man who seems self-sufficient. The executive who is the CEO of a major corporation. The executive who controls a large department in a Fortune 500 company. Or the executive that has to make crucial decisions about the lives of those e
mployees they serve. Who is standing up for them? Who is helping them stand strong in their faith? Who is making sure that we have soldiers in God’s army that will stick to Godly prin
ciples when making those financial and personal decisions? I’ll tell you who? Our next guest, that’s who! He has been featured on Fox 46 as he spoke on the market impact of discovering the Omicron Covid-19 variant, and he has been featured on major news outlets such as CNN, CNBC, Barron's, and Market Watch. He has been a guest on popular podcasts such as The Prosperity Perspective to share his views on the investment ideology of being an entrepreneur in today's time, and right now, he is with us, talking about executives and how to bridge the gap between their faith and their finances. He is the Owner of Abundant Advisors, a certified financial planner, a man of God, a father of 2, soon to be 3, and our next guest.

4 Biblical Principles Every Christian Should Know About Finances and Creating Generational Wealth.
About the podcast:
Many Christians struggle with the seemingly conflicting views about our faith and the pursuit of financial gain. They were taught that poverty was piety and that a lack of money was the only way to truly detach themselves from the love of money. Our podcast debunks some of those claims, teaches you that you can be rich and righteous, and at the same time fulfill your obligation to tithe and give to the less fortunate. 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.
