Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve asked someone to keep your secret only to find out that the “world” now knows your situation? The heartbreak of losing trust is overwhelming. Trust isn’t a tool from the toolbox, it is a character. It is built on integrity, and integrity is a trait that we should all aspire to have.
One of the biggest things that people want to keep confidential is their finances, especially when there are financial struggles. When someone is constantly fighting with their checkbook, it creates burdens that are very real and very heavy to carry. In my position here at FCC, I have had several individuals and couples come into the office seeking guidance on their finances and assistance with budgeting. When we sit down together, my job isn’t to judge you or your checkbook. My job will be to help you as best I can to get back on your feet and get the elephant off your back.
You won’t need to worry about trust, integrity or the breaking of confidence. One thing I have learned through my career as a banking executive, personnel director, and now as business manager of the church is trustworthiness, confidentiality and the importance of both.
If the financial elephant is on your back, I would love the opportunity to sit down and discuss how I can help you.
“For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you,
‘Fear not, I will help you’” (Isaiah 41:13).
God promises to support and help you through every trial.
