Jay Richardson: Building Wealth Is NOT Ungodly!
Disclaimer: Advisory Services are offered through Inspire Advisors LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser with the SEC. Ignite Your Business Radio Show and Inspire Advisors are not affiliated. Biblically Responsible Investing is the practice of making investments that are as based in careful market research as they are in the Christian values of the investor. It is the goal of anyone working in this area to glorify God through an investment process that also reflects the financial needs and goals of the individual. While doing research on this subject, I discovered there are well our 2,000 verses in the bible alone that talk about the subject of money. Everything from putting your hope in wealth, giving, greed, and even debt. Many don’t realize that giving back to the community takes resources. These resources require others that have the means, big or small, to give to the cause. What can you do, if you want to invest wisely and safely through Biblically Responsible investing? Jay Richardson brings more than three decades of financial understanding to individuals, groups, and companies across the entire spectrum of Christianity. I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to the notion that wealth is more than financial assets or investments, few understand this more clearly than Jay.
