Welcome to The MapleMoney Show, the podcast that helps Canadians improve their personal finances to create lasting financial freedom. I’m your host, TomDrake, the founder of MapleMoney, where I’ve been writing about all things related to personal finance since 2009.
In today’s episode, my guest and I tackle money lessons from the world’s most well-known book, the Bible. Bob Lotich is the founder of Seedtime, a resource for people who are looking for Biblical wisdom on how to handle their money.
I asked Bob what the Bible has to say about topics such as going into debt, hoarding, even the principles of budgeting and financial planning. We discuss the importance of giving, and the idea that it’s more blessed to give than to receive.
Lastly, Bob sets the facts straight about an oft-misquoted Bible verse. Is money really the root of all evil? Listen in to find out.
Even if you’re not a Christian, you’ll get something out of this episode, as it’s packed with practical advice that will help you manage your money and help others.
