The Importance of Budgeting

2 Corinthians 5:5

The importance of budgeting is centered on real financial freedom and maximizing your resources. But real financial freedom is more than debt-free living and spending your money on your every whim or desire. Your budget is a tool to help you make the most effective use of your resources for the Glory of God and building his kingdom. See Biblical Personal Budgeting Homepage for more information.

You Have Purpose
You were created with a specific purpose in God's mind. When you gave your life to Christ, he put his spirit in you to help you fulfill your purpose for which he created you. He invites you to cooperate with him in accomplishing his purpose and building his kingdom. He has given you everything you need to fulfill your purpose in life. Your budget is merely a tool to help you make the most effective use of your resources to meet your financial needs and maximize your ability to sow resources into the kingdom of God. Those are his resources anyway and you are merely a steward, or caretaker, of what he has entrusted to you

Fulfill Your Purpose
When you create your budget and live by it, you have the ability to plan for those unexpected expenses you know are coming. You have the ability to increase your savings and investing. And, you have the ability to give generously and practice Biblical stewardship. Nothing is more rewarding or satisfying than knowing and understanding that you are fulfilling the purpose for which you were made.
