In Coach Gibbs’ book, Game Plan for Life, there are many chapters that can help us in our everyday life, but Chapter 9 on Finances is an area that seems to be the number one area where we all need help. At the beginning of the chapter Coach talks about his struggles and mistakes that he made with money. The biggest of them all being the real estate mess he got into in Oklahoma. During this financial crisis Coach wrote down at least 15 things he learned that has helped him to make financial decisions for the rest of his life. In the Bible finances is talked about over 2,000 times and the main thing Coach will tell you he learned was to follow God’s word and trust in Him. Don’t try to do it yourself and outside of the guidelines that are laid out for us in his Word. The second most important thing he learned? Listen to your wife!
