Maximize your earning potential
“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers you too will prosper.”
Work as a team with your spouse to help solve money problems.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”
