BCC Staff Note: On weekends we like to highlight for you one of our growing list of free resources. This weekend we highlight a resource audio from the 2014 IBCD Summer Institute. For a complete list of speakers and messages, visit the IBCD Summer Institute 2014 home page.
In this resource, Jim Newheiser addresses the issue of Helping People with a Difficult Financial Past. We live in challenging economic times. How do we counsel people who can’t make ends meet, have lost their jobs, or are overwhelmed with debt? Is it ever right to borrow money? Is it ever justified to not repay a loan? What preparations should we make for the future? How can we deal with the tension between spending/lifestyle, saving and giving?
