Christmas is a celebration of the greatest gift ever given: the arrival of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ. However, for many of us, the financial stress that this Festive Season brings with it can be almost unbearable.
Financial expert, Alex Cook, founder of Wealth With Purpose, spoke with Neil Johnson on Vision’s 20Twenty program to discuss practical advice on how we can prepare for Christmas and honour God with our finances.
“Our responsibility as Christians is to be good stewards of what God has given us,” Alex shared. “Good stewardship is about providing Biblical principles to your finances…there is a real opportunity here to do good.”
Alex shared some of his financial advice with Neil, saying, “There’s a whole science to impulse buying, you’re surrounded by temptation, all designed to get you to buy something…take your list and stick to your budget, and you won’t regret it,” Alex shared. “One of the key-starting points with any kind of money management situation is that you need to have a plan…set some parameters for your finances.”
