In this episode of the Generosity Podcast, Todd McMichen is joined by Art Rainer, author of The Marriage Challenge, and former executive pastor. During their conversation, they discuss why it is important for married couples to be on the same page financially.
“70% of married couples say they argue about finances.”
“57% of divorced couples say that finances were the reason for their divorce.”
“Getting couples on the same page financially can really benefit their marriage as they work to advance God’s kingdom.”
“God designed us not to be hoarders, but conduits through which His generosity flows.”
“Financially healthy people are better able to say ‘yes’ instead of ‘not yet.’”
“God didn’t give us money to destroy our marriage.”
“You are going to bring certain expectations to the marriage about how finances work, and it’s important to deconstruct those expectations.”
“Pastor, it’s OK that you aren’t the money expert. God is.”
