Finances and Hope Shifting – HIRL Episode 99

HIRL-Episode-99In this final installment of our three-part series on financial fear, we’re returning to our roots and discussing how hope shifting can factor into our fear when it comes to finances.

More regularly described as idolatry, “hope shifting” simply means that we’re putting our hope in something other than God for our well-being and care, a habit that comes easily to many of us living and working in first-world countries. How does the idea that we can and should provide for ourselves and our families too often morph into a belief that our hard work and stockpiling will be what ultimately brings us security?

We’re talking all about hope shifting, finances, and the freedom that relying on the true provider can bring to our marriages and families.
