Tracking Your Generosity With Art Rainer

Do you know how much you’ve given back to God’s Kingdom over the years? The sum total of your generosity is not a number you’ll find in your 401k or IRA, and you probably never think about it, but it’s important for a number of reasons. We’ll talk about that with Art Rainer.

  • Art says his only major financial regret is that he didn’t start tracking his giving earlier. But better late than never!
  • Rainer explains that if generosity is a top financial priority, then we should track it, just as we should keep tabs on other aspects of our finances.
  • He explains that you’ll place more emphasis on things that you track.
  • Art also says that giving reveals our trust in God, not in money, and tracking helps us to assess the level of trust we’re placing in God.
  • He says, “you chase what you track.” and that makes tracking your generosity very important.

On this program, Rob also answers listener questions:

  • Given elevated home prices, should you just continue to rent?
  • What do you recommend as a secure way to invest savings?
  • After building credit using a secured credit card, should you switch to a conventional credit card?
  • How do you address an error with your escrow account?
  • How should you balance paying down your mortgage with investing for retirement?
