Financial Advice from the Bible


Many believed that the Bible teaches us to be anti-money or anti-rich, but if you devote your time reading through it, it will show all of us that we really need to have our finances aligned.
Here are verses that will enlighten us on money management:

1 Timothy 6:9-11
“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
We often hear “Money is the root of all evil” but we forget the phrase from the verse, “the love of money” and its true context. Money could be the root of all evil but more so of the lack of it. Many people are trapped into the temptation of excessive money and lavish lifestyle, more than what really one needs. With that, people get the impression that money is always bad – it’s not. Money should be an instrument to give you and your family a good life and help other people to feel the same way.

Proverbs 3:9-10
“Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first of all your produce”
This means a proper allocation of your wealth. Obligate a portion for your needs, a portion for your savings and most importantly commit a tenth of your income to the Church or your place of worship. Also, it is said that the more money you make, the more you should give. The more spend on yourself, the more you should give for charity.

Proverbs 13:11
“Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it.”
If you get money from gambling, fraud and taking advantage others, you will suffer; but will be blessed if you get money out of your hard work. It is important to understand that lying, cheating and taking advantage of people are not good income channels but honest and hard work will lead to unconsciously increasing wealth.

Proverbs 21:5
“Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.”
Careful planning is also important to building your wealth – it leads to prosperity. If you prosper financially, you have the bigger responsibility of teaching people how to fish, and later on prosper with you. It is clear that planning is essential to be able to reach your goal, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.

The Bible talks so much about virtues that we should all live by including the right value for money. It is not easy to be poor and broke.Let us be wise for without money,no survival.

FAT BURNING FOODS


While we’d all like to believe that losing weight is just a matter of eating fewer calories, sometimes it’s not that simple. When it comes to weight loss, eating the right kinds of foods can be just as important as simply eating smaller portions. Some foods can help keep your blood sugar stable, preventing you from crashing and craving a sugar fix, and others can help you feel fuller longer or even encourage fat loss.

1. Coconut oil

Coconut oil has been making headlines as a new superfood – and some believe it can help you lose weight, too. Coconut oil is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, which are metabolized differently than the long-chain fatty acids found in most fats. These medium chain fatty acids are used first and foremost for energy in the body, instead of being stored as fat.

2. Apple cider vinegar

Produced by fermenting apple cider, apple cider vinegar is known to be a rich source of minerals, enzymes, vitamins and amino acids. A study cited by the American Diabetes Foundation found that consuming apple-cider vinegar before a high-carb meal significantly increased insulin sensitivity, reducing insulin spikes that can lead to cravings.

3.Lemons

According to the Journal of the American College of Nutrition vitamin C levels are inversely related to body mass. People with adequate levels of vitamin C oxidize 30 percent more fat during moderate exercise than those with low levels of vitamin C. Start your day with a glass of lemon water and substitute fresh lemon juice for vinegar on your salads.

4. Wild fatty-fish

High in protein and rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fatty fish including salmon, herring, trout and sardines, can support weight loss while also helping a person maintain muscle mass. Some evidence also indicates that omega-3s found in fish may help improve metabolism, though more research needs to be done. Wild caught fish always contain fewer contaminants that farmed fish, making it a healthier choice.

5. Grapefruit

Grapefruit is low in calories, high in enzymes and can keep you full. In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers found that eating half of a fresh grapefruit before meals was associated with significant weight loss among obese study participants. Researchers also noted that participants who consumed grapefruit before a meal also experienced a significant reduction in two-hour post-glucose insulin levels.

Adding these foods to your diet on a regular basis can help you shed some extra weight without much extra effort. For long-term weight-loss, eliminate processed foods and stick with whole foods and regular exercise.
