College students today are facing difficult financial challenges. Credit card debt and even student gambling are rapidly growing problems on campus, and the American Bankruptcy Institute reveals that 19 percent of the people who filed for bankruptcy last year were college students. That means one in five bankruptcy filings were by very young people who started their lives as financial failures. But, did you know that the Bible contains 2,350 verses that deal with money and possessions?
Many Christians have been taught what the Bible says about how to handle 10 percent of their income-the area of giving. However, it is crucial that students on the verge of beginning their careers and families understand God's perspective on how to handle the other 90 percent as well.
In the Collegiate Edition of Crown Ministries' Biblical Financial Study students will learn what Scripture teaches about managing all their possessions. Each time students learn a principle, there is a financial exercise to help them apply it. College is one of the most formative times in a person's life. What a wonderful opportunity to equip young people to be faithful financially for the rest of their lives!
