Episode 49: 7 Steps to Financial Freedom - Part 3

About this episode:
This week on the Crown Podcast, we continue in our three part mini-series from some live teaching called The 7 steps to Financial Freedom. This episode makes clear what our financial priorities should look like - without making you feel guilty if these have not been your priorities in the past! Chuck Bentley explains the importance of savings, which should be only second to giving. After you have become a Giver and a Saver, then your focus will move to paying off debt. Chuck shares practical examples and encouraging stories to help you feel confident as you take on these roles. If these priorities feel foreign to you, this episode will clarify biblical principles and priorities and empower you to find financial freedom!

Podcast Highlights:

  •  Give first, save second.
  • Chuck gives several examples of why savings is not just necessary, but biblical!
  • Easy and easily applicable steps on how to save to find financial freedom by becoming a Saver.
  • After giving and saving, the next priority is to pay off debt. Though debt is not a sin, it will keep you in financial slavery. Chuck provides practical advice and strategies to help you pay off debt.
