How can baby boomers manage effectively the inheritance left to them by their frugal, post-Depression, post-war parents? Ron Blue encourages and challenges parents of baby boomers and baby boomers themselves to make generous giving a part of their strategic, long-term life choices.
Blue says, "I'm not the only Christian who struggles with the whole issue of giving". A respected financial consultant and author, he says, "I have spent more than a quarter of a century studying financial and investment strategies. I've written several books and spoken to countless people via television, radio, and in person. But if I could boil everything I have ever learned down into one sentence, it would be this: Giving and financial freedom are inextricably linked".
"The folks who enjoy genuine freedom and joy are those who give the most, relative to their incomes", he insists. "Giving is more than just a way to use your money. It is a lifestyle, a way of living that allows you to hold all that you own with an open, generous hand".
In "Master Your Giving" Blue talks about why it is better to give than to receive, how to teach your children to give, how to give your money wisely, how to make up a will, how to set up a trust and foundation, how to transfer a family business, and other practical strategies for handling your money and creating a lasting legacy.
But Blue concludes that giving is not just about money or meeting needs. He says, "God asks you to give because he wants your heart. Your behavior says a lot about what you truly believe". "Master Your Giving" gives you the keys to a new kind of financial freedom -- the freedom to trust God with everything you own and to live a generouslifestyle that blesses the world around you.
