Weekly Wrap, Easter edition: finding purpose, Declaration of Financial Independence & more

Light at end of the tunnel.By Jonathan Chevreau

Since it’s Easter weekend and Passover begins tonight, I thought we’d dedicate the Hub’s weekly wrap to more spiritual matters or at least view personal finances through a spiritual lens.

We’ll start with this essay from Peter Grandich:  A Biblical Perspective on Matters of Finance. As Peter noted in an email to me, “We know that matters of finance are the second most talked about topic in the Bible.”

One of five “Religious Personal Finance” blogs flagged on the Hub’s Top Blogs tag is Out of Your Rut. It recently ran an intriguing piece entitled 10 ways to be rich without being wealthy.

The Indebted and in Debt blog recently ran a “Reintroduction” about what inspired indebted mum Kirsten to launch the blog a year ago, when she was on Mat Leave, her husband was looking for work and the young family had crushing debts.

The latest blog at Christian Personal Finance (@ChristianPF on Twitter)  is How to find your purpose in life.

Over at Bible Money Matters there’s a piece about Dave Ramsay’s Legacy Journey: How to build wealth and leave a legacy.

The Luke 1428 blog riffs off the book of Proverbs with 3 Reasons a Good Name is Better than Riches.

Finally, I stumbled across these 12 interesting points contained in The Christian Declaration of Financial Independendence. Most of the points are mainstream common-sense principles of personal finance: eschew debt, live within your means, save up for emergencies, invest for the long term, build home equity and more.

The Hub’s weekly wrap will return to its regular secular financial programming next edition.

  1. This is the second post in a week with religious references. I enjoy the financial information on your financial web site but not the religious preaching so I am unsubscribing.
