Where Financial Freedom Begins
Ernest L. Easley
We have recently learned from God's Word how God wants to bless our families. That's one reason He gave us the Ten Commandments! Those commandments or guidelines teach us how to build godly lives and godly homes in order for us to experience God's blessing on our families.
But did you know that God not only wants to bless our families, He wants to bless our finances? Well, He does! And that's why God has so much to say to us about money.
