Ep. 3.4 : Money, Marriage, and More with Chuck & Ann Bentley

“Mo Money Mo Problems” —The Notorious B.I.G. It’s not often that one quotes The Notorious B.I.G. to kick off a Christian podcast, yet his song title is all too relevant for how many of us feel when dealing with our finances. It’s not necessarily a reference to how much money we have, but just to the problems money can cause when we don’t approach it biblically. As we continue our miniseries this January, “New Year, New You,” we’re getting down to the nitty-gritty of our finances. Chuck and Ann Bentley are on the show today, and they know their stuff. They speak all over the world teaching biblical financial principles, doing it with grace and love. Chuck also has a daily radio broadcast and has written several books. Here are some of the highlights of what the Bentleys shared: How to redefine prosperity to line up with the Bible’s definition How men and women approach finances differently Being a peacemaker in your marriage when money raises tensions Tips for handling debt Common financial mistakes families make What generosity and giving say about our priorities My hope is that we can take an honest look at our finances today, considering how we’re stewarding what the Lord has given us and if it’s pleasing to him. “Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.” —Proverbs 11:28 P.S.
