88 – Protect Yourself, Protect your Money


Are you prepared and protected for daily financial life?

Drawing inspiration from an inspiring story, I explore the opportunity of spiritual armor and its relevance to our financial decisions. To illustrate its significance, I delve into the story of chemist Stephanie Kwolek, whose invention protects and saves countless lives. Just as Kevlar protects professionals in dangerous situations, we have access to spiritual armor that can shield us from financial pitfalls. Join me as I uncover the three key components of this armor and discover how they can transform our approach to stewardship.

In this episode, John discusses:

  • Stephanie Kwolek, Kevlar, and the potential impact of innovative discoveries
  • The opportunity of spiritual armor and its relevance in protecting oneself in a world full of financial choices and challenges
  • The significance of seeking God’s wisdom in making sound financial decisions and aligning one’s choices with His truth
  • The three key components of the spiritual armor and how they can transform our approach to stewardship

Key Takeaways:

  • Protect your financial choices and opportunities by wearing the spiritual armor of God, just like Kevlar shields professionals and armed service members in battles.
  • Rely on God’s strength, protection, and guidance to make wise financial decisions and avoid the temptations of materialism and greed.
  • Prayer is vital in seeking God’s guidance and wisdom in financial decisions, inviting Him into your financial journey, and aligning your choices with His truth and word.
  • By wearing the spiritual armor of God, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to a larger story, fulfilling God’s purposes and bringing glory to Him while blessing others.

“He’s given you the armor you need for the battles you will fight. It’s time to put it on.”
