Turning Chaos into Calm: How Faith Can Guide Your Finances

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].” 2 Timothy 1:7 AMP

What is Return on Investment (ROI)?

When you invest time, energy, or money into something, you expect something back, like planting a seed and getting a tree full of fruit. In financial terms, this is called Return on Investment (ROI). ROI measures the gain or loss generated by an investment in comparison to how much it originally cost you. It's like checking if your seeds turned into a fruitful orchard.
