Financial Wisdom from Solomon and Dave
Dave Ramsey is my number two financial guru hero. Number one is my husband, who loves to quote Dave and does, often. Fortunately, he also practices what Dave preaches from his radio bully pulpit. We love listening to Dave on the radio. ("Same advice your grandmother gave you except we keep our teeth in." )
So I'm reading along in day one of the study and I just had to laugh out loud. It's like Dave's in my head, reading to me. He even writes with a Tennessee twang! And of course the message is familiar, based on one of the scriptures from Proverbs that the series is built around.
If you've never listened to Dave Ramsey then I should explain that he isn't a preacher, he's just a godly man and amazing teacher who knows a lot about how to get out of debt. It doesn't hurt that he bases what he teaches on what he's learned from the Good Book and the Prince of Peace, to whom he gives credit at the end of every program. And no, in case you're wondering, you don't have to be religious to follow Dave's plans or apply his advice.
If you're interested in the 10-day devotional on financial wisdom (which is free), you'll find it on YouVersion, here. Not familiar with YouVersion? Check out their home page, here. Learn all about Dave Ramsey (you can even listen to his Tennessee twang) here.
P.S. I should mention that I'm not making fun of the Tennessee twang. I enjoy it almost as much as I love my husband's Arkansas drawl. Yep, someday I'd love to get these two men together!
