When it comes to money, sound management is crucial, and Tony Amaradio believes that the key to effective management is a system deeply rooted in faith. Only by taking a faith-based approach to money management, can people be fully freed from the chains of financial hardship. Tony Amaradio, one of the nation’s leading inspirational wealth experts, teaches that careful financial planning aligned to God’s word can lead to a more fulfilling and debt-free lifestyle.
Although biblical principles may be ancient, many are also universal and still extremely relevant to financial planning today. According to FamilyLife.com, about “15% of all the recorded words of Jesus were on the topic of money.” Jesus’s teachings on money in the New Testament lay the foundation for all of Tony Amaradio’s financial advice. Jesus speaks often about giving back to the church as well as to the less fortunate. The idea that any wealth we possess on this earth is given to us, and not ours to keep, encourages tithing and philanthropy– principles that Amaradio has always been openly passionate about.
To further follow God’s plan for our financial health, Amaradio believes in establishing a strong saving routine that can eventually lead to smart investments. It is not only God’s plan that we should live debt-free lives, but also that we are able to to grow wealth to supply for our needs and to further the kingdom of God. Tony Amaradio and his wife Carin demonstrate these values in the way they live their own lives and reach out to others through their continued generosity to charities and their persistent teachings of living Godly financial lives.
In their book, Faithful With Much: Breaking Down the Barriers to Generous Living, Tony and Carin Amaradio explain in depth what it means to build your finances around Christian principles, and the rewards you can expect from living your life according to God’s will. Through smart saving and spending wisely, the couple shows that by being faithful with money, you can grow your wealth and even more importantly, learn to give it away. Although donating funds can undoubtedly increase your level of joy and sense of purpose, The New York Times also points out that “donations to charitable organizations can make a difference in your community and also reduce tax burden.”
