Some of you may be wondering why I have not update this blog for the past few days, well I was away on business. Somehow, it seem to be a long while especially when I did so many things over the last few days. I was in KL with a colleague to attend the Investor Expo 2010. It was an interesting expo with many well known speakers delivering talks in their area of expertise. Of course in such expo, all the participants were talking about money. As a Christian, I personally feel that I have to balance between pursuing financial goals vs. godly goals. As you are aware, Jesus taught a fair bit about money management. From here we can judge the importance of money. However,we have to be careful not to make "finance" as an idol. Granted it is important to us, but we need to be discerning.
From the many sessions of seminar I attended, I realized the importance of teaching our younger generations the techniques of managing their money using financial planning tools. It is imperative to start young because once our children got the habits of managing their wealth well, they will be able to achieve financial freedom in the long run.
Financial Planning for everyone
Financial planning is NOT only meant for the rich because no matter how rich or poor a person is, he has to plan his finances. Everyone need some kind of plan, not only the rich people.
Christian Financial Planning
Those who are interested to know more about Christian financial planning, you can read books by Larry Burkett, an authority in Christian finance.
