In addition to memorizing the listed Scripture and completing the Homework section, read the Notes section prior to the first meeting. In the Crown Money Map,™ review the section of the map called "Prepare for the Journey" and complete the steps indicated.
Crown recommends Chuck Bentley's book The Worst Financial Mistakes in the Bible as optional reading for this study. Prior to Week 1, we suggest you read Chapters 1 and 2 in the book. By reading two chapters each week, you will complete the entire book by the end of this study. We also invite you to sign-up for Crown's daily devotional called God is Faithful (crown.org/resources/god-is-faithful-daily-devotional).
After you complete the homework for this lesson, watch the Week 1 video at the bottom of this section.
Sometime this week, make sure to buy a set of index cards or a notebook small enough to carry with you. Starting with week 2, part of your homework will be to record every income and expense.
