Ready to evaluate and step up your monthly giving to advance the good news of Jesus? It'll take intentionality and sacrifice, but there's no greater investment.

Key Points:

  • Know where your money is going.
  • Pledge to give.

Quote This:

A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went. -Dave Ramsey
