You Made Us Stink!
I have been teaching through the book of Exodus with the youth group. I have just been taking it chapter by chapter and really without an outline.

Everything under heaven is Mine.” -Job 41:11 One of the things I find out while working for a church and talking to people struggling financially is how people view money and money management. Not every person in the church or those who claim to be aContinue reading “Biblical Foundations of Finance”
