Guy Hatcher is Managing Partner at The Company Coach and columnist for the Christian Post. He's the author of, "Your Future Reflection: How to Leave a Legacy Beyond Money."

 

Matthew 6:25 says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” Using this excerpt, Hatcher explains how people can cope with financial anxiety. 

 

God’s word states, “Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.” –Ecclesiastes 7:12 NIV. Hatcher discusses how people can use this saying to better manage their investments with wisdom.

 

Proverbs 13:22 (NIV) says, “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.” Hatcher thinks it is so important for people to leave legacies. He talks about how people can better understand the power of “The Blessing,” and how they can receive and give it.
