Pathway to a Stronger Relationship with God
As you strive to be a better disciple of Jesus, do you ever think of how money can help you grow closer to Christ? For money to be an effective tool to help you deepen your relationship with God, you first need to have the proper attitude toward money and possessions. That attitude starts with the mindset that God owns everything and that He loves us so much that He gives us everything. Everything we are and and all that we have is given to us by God – how awesome is that?! How overwhelming! How do we respond to God for all of His blessings?
The Pathway to a Stronger Relationship with God seminar paves the way for Catholics to explore a faith perspective of their relationship with money that will bring them closer to Christ. This interactive event is offered in two settings: A 40-minute seminar usually presented as a part of your meeting, and a 2-hour workkshop. The workshop includes an engaging “World Says” vs. “God Says” exchange that challenges commonly held beliefs about financial success and happiness. And we go into a lot more Scripture by considering parables and other Bible passages, as well as Church teachings to help us form a Godly attitude about managing God’s gifts of Time, Talent, and especially, Treasure. The end result is that when we know and embrace these truths, and put God first in every aspect of our lives, including money, we then gain the peace and contentment we seek.
Having an eternal perspective about assets and accomplishments is the key to providing well for loved ones. Scripture states that the reality of our eternal future should determine the character of our present lives and the use of our assets and possessions.
The Finish Well seminar is about creating a legacy. It is about helping to formulate and organize your legacy in a way that communicates your love for God and your care for your loved ones even after you’re gone from this world. In this workshop we will review the practical financial issues of asset ownership, beneficiary designations, creating a data document, and more. The workshop can be a stand-alone seminar, or a part of a larger “end-of-life” program.
