Troy Noor is the father of eight children and a partner at Boulevard Wealth Management. He joined Bob Willbanks on The Thrive! Podcast to discuss the topic of money and wealth.
Troy talks about the common misconception that money is evil. He notes that the Bible says "the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil" in 1Timothy 6:10. If we love money more than God then we have placed money on the level of an idol, and then problems arise. Money is a tool we use to provide for the needs of our family and to further God's kingdom.
Troy discusses the values exercise new clients are walked through when working with Boulevard Wealth Management. The following three questions are at the core of the process:
- Imagine you had all the money in the world. What would you do?
- Imagine you have just five years left to live. What do you do with the time?
- Imagine this is your last day on earth. Do you have any regrets?
Bob and Troy talked about the three ways Christians can relate to money. Where do you see yourself in the following list?
- They make money an idol
- They become a slave to money
- They are master over their money
Troy answers the question "Is it Biblical to accumulate wealth?" He responds by noting if we are so attached to our wealth that we can't follow Jesus, we need to reevaluate. If we are using wealth to provide for our families and further the kingdom of God we are masters of the wealth and using it to a good end.
