Hebrews 13 has a great reminder for us at this time of year, “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are … pleasing to God.” Christmas is almost here, a time when we naturally feel more generous. Today, host Rob West talks with Laurie Farquhar of the National Christian Foundation to explore the best ways to give at this time.


·      Generosity should be part of your lifestyle. Be generous with your time, talent, and financial resources.


·      Remember that God owns everything we have, and we are the managers of what God has entrusted to us.


·      God has entrusted all of us with different kinds of assets (finances, time, influence, relationships).


·      Talk with God, your family, and your friends about how to view your resources, and what values you should have.


·      Successfully acquiring wealth is one of the greatest advancements a family can have, but it can also trigger problems.


·      Setting a financial finish line depends on how you view the assets you have, where your values lie with those assets, and what your overall goal is as an individual and as a family.


Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on today’s program:


·      I have Coverdell accounts for my 3 daughters. When I access those accounts to pay for their tuition, do I make the payment directly to the college from the account or can I pay out of my own checking account and then reimburse myself for those funds?


·      During COVID, I’ve been attending church online. I have money set aside for tithe but no home church to give it to. Would it still be considered tithing if I used that money to give to those around me and help them in a time of need?
