Sunday with Dave Ramsey

We had a great time at MKCC this morning with Dave Ramsey talking about Biblical Finance, courtesy of Open.

  • Lavern did a great job opening with Phil Collins - I've been waiting for this moment all of my life.
  • Sang a new song for me. The words rocked my world: Hungry I come to you for I know you can satisfy. Jesus you are all this heart is living for
Here are some of my notes from the preach:
  • How many of you have done something stupid with money. My hand up!
  • I've got a PhD in D.U.M.B.
  • Ever blame anyone else when you do something stupid.
  • I met God on the way up. Then I got to KNOW him on the way down.
  • Biblical finance is 80% behaviour and only 20% knowledge.
  • 5 principles of biblical finance. 1. Get out of debt. 2. act you wage. 3. Get on a budget. 4. learn to save & invest. 5. Get the other ones right and you can GIVE.
  • The borrower is slave to the lender. U got to do what u r told. Master card is well named because it becomes your master.
  • I went about the business of having plastic surgery. (cutting up credit cards)
  • To many of us use money we don't have to buy things we don't need to impress people we don't know.
  • You are wise if you save you are a fool if you devour all you have.
  • Debt is not a sin but it is biblically stupid.
  • Save you pizza & cable money and you can solve any retirement problems.
If you missed the preach you can watch it here.

Oh and lastly, don't anyone ever tell me that video teaching does not work in UK. People from #MKCC loved hearing Dave Ramsey today - awesome!
