I believe we all have a spiritual side to us. There is a need for us to connect with a higher power or other enlightenment. Christians would say that’s because God designed us that way. Believers in other religions would likely have similar reasoning.
Going to church has made me a better husband, father, colleague, and friend. But, let’s face it, we are all messed up. Most of us battle with some level of depression or anxiety or have things we’ve done in the past that haunt us.
Finding a good church helps us forgive ourselves, accept our imperfections, and love others better. I can honestly say that church has made me a better person. That doesn’t mean it’s made me a better person than you or anyone else, but it has given me a sense of peace that I didn’t know was possible.
Money is one of the most talked-about topics in the Bible. So many of the beliefs we carry in the personal finance community about debt and investing are covered often in the Bible.
More than anything, what the church has allowed me to do is let go and put control into the hands of a higher power. Letting go and trusting that God has me on the right path has changed my life in ways that are tough to explain.
Right now, I’m taking things one step at a time in my faith—both in my spiritual journey and in my interactions with others. Going to church has helped me with both. I’m thankful to have found a place that speaks to me.
