The Transcript


"Ross Haycock, Certified Financial Planner and Vice President at Summit Wealth Group is the host of today's mini episode. "


"The second H in the four H's of financial wisdom has to do with health and it's really about today's reality, what's happening today in your life. There are five simultaneous competing priorities for the use of money and God's word speaks to each of those.

It's live, give, oh, grow. And we'll dive into each one of these. Live. Practice provision, contentment, and enjoyment, because money is a tool. That's all money is. It's just a tool used to get what we need and sometimes what we want. You can reference 1 Timothy 4, 4, 5, 8, and 6, 6 through 10. Give. Open my hand to release God's resources.

He wants my heart connected to his kingdom story. And you can reference Matthew 6, 19 through 24, 2 Corinthians 8, 9 through 11. And Luke 16, 13. Now there's two aspects of O and the first one is debt. Eliminate debt because debt always presumes upon the future. And that's referenced uh, in Proverbs 22, 7 in James four 13 through 16.

Although you may be in a great situation right now financially, but we don't know what things look like tomorrow or next year. And when you incur debt, it just always presumes that things are gonna continue to happen as they've always happened, and that may not be the case. The second area of O is taxes, and here's an interesting truth that you may never have thought about.

But pay taxes with gratitude. It's a sign or a reflection of God's provision. And that's Matthew 22, 17 through 21. That's something to think about. Finally, grow. Demonstrate financial maturity by giving up today's desires for tomorrow's benefits. If you look at Proverbs 6, 6 through 8, and Luke 14, 28 through 30, those are good references.

Now some things in regards to your current health situation, I have a great tool, a great chart that can help you understand where you're at in each one of these areas, live, give, owe, grow. And I'd be happy to send that to you. There's some calculations that you want to look at, but it'll give you an idea of where you're at currently and some things that you might want to change.

For example, if you're paying too much in taxes or you'd like to increase your giving, this will give you a level set of where you're at right now and some areas that you might want to change."
