For Financial Self-Control, Use a Budget
Do you want more self-control?
Paul instructed Titus to teach the men and women to be self-controlled. He wrote that the grace of God “teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ…” (Titus 2:12-13)
Financial self-control can be developed with a budget. Abigail and Eric needed help. They went through Crown’s Budget Coaching program. They entered the course uncertain about the line between seeking worldly security and seeking godly stewardship. In the midst of the study, they were reminded of the Bible’s wisdom in handling money as an extension of discipleship. Their experience was blessed through a wise coach. They say, “His encouragement and steadiness was very helpful. He was flexible so we could adapt the course to what we needed in this season of life. We really appreciate his discipleship, as he’s clearly sought God and lived out wisdom in this area for his own life over time. We don’t have parental examples of how to do this successfully. Our coaches’ role filled a big need for us. The most significant part of the course for us was seeing a really helpful budget structure. Our coach led us through this really well.” Real-life examples taught Eric and Abigail how to handle their finances confidently. A budget coach could help you develop self-control too, so that you can live with greater purpose.
