Most people know the importance of a household budget, but many people have the wrong thing at the top of that budget. Find out what Liesl and Rod have on theirs, and what you may be missing from yours. Read Transcript


WHEN I WAS INTRODUCED TO

THE CREDIT CARD, I CHARGED

IT TO THE MAX, BECAUSE I

LIKED TO BUY CLOTHES.

Reporter: LISA SHOPPED

AND OVERSPENT IN ALL OF HER

FAVORITE STORES.

I HAD 10 CREDIT CARDS AT

ONE TIME, ALL MAXED OUT.

AND I WOULD JUST PAY MINIMUM

PAYMENTS.

AT 24, I OWED $24,000 OF

CONSUMER DEBT.

YOU HAVE ONE MESSAGE.

I'M CALLING FROM BAY

CREDITORS.

I WAS GETTING CALLS FROM

COLLECTORS.

I STARTED TO GET DEPRESSED.

I FELT TOTALLY LOST.

Reporter: WHEN A FRIEND

AT WORK SHARED HIS FAITH

WITH LISA, SHE FELT HOPE FOR

THE FIRST TIME AND PRAYED

WITH HIM.

I ACCEPTED CHRIST AS LORD

OF MY LIFE.

AND I'VE NEVER BEEN THE

SAME.

AND NOT LONG AFTER THAT I

STARTED TO READ MY BIBLE.

AND I JUST KNEW THAT THERE

WAS HOPE FOR ME, THAT I

WASN'T GOING TO STAY IN THAT

PIT FOREVER.

Reporter: SHE MADE A

DECISION TO CUT UP HER

CREDIT CARDS.

SHE PAID OFF HER DEBTS,

LITTLE BY LITTLE, UNTIL SHE

WAS DEBT-FREE.

LATER WHEN LISA AND ROSS

MARRIED, THEY BEGAN TO

FOLLOW THE FINANCIAL

PROMISES IN THE BIBLE.

I FOUND A HUGE INCOME

WHEN WE STARTED TITHING.

HE CONTINUED TO PROMOTE

ME, PROVIDED ME WITH

BONUSES.

I CAN TELL YOU, WE'VE

EXPERIENCED IT. WE COME

FROM NOTHING, AND NOW GOD

HAS BLESSED US IN EVERY AREA

OF OUR LIVES.

Reporter: THEIR INCOME

GREW RIGHT ALONG WITH THEIR

FAMILY.

THEY ALSO JOINED "THE 700

CLUB."

WE LOVE "THE 700 CLUB."

I LOVE THAT IT IS GLOBAL,

THAT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE

AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE AND

HEAR ABOUT THE FAITHFULNESS

OF OUR GOD.

AS MY DAD USED TO SAY,

THAT'S THE KIND OF MINISTRY

YOU WANT TO TIE YOUR HORSE

UP TO.

WE ENJOY THAT GIVING.

AND BECAUSE WE ENJOY IT SO

MUCH, GOD JUST KEEPS GIVING

IT BACK TO US.

WE HAVE BEEN TITHING

CLOSE TO 21 YEARS, AND GOD

HAS PROVEN HIMSELF FAITHFUL

TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
