The 4C's are: Four Biblical Principles of Financial Faithfulness
Capture - Every dollar in, and every dollar out.
Categorize – Every dollar in – goes to a category; every dollar out comes from a category.
Compare – How much is available to spend in this category, and how many days until next paycheck.
Change – Change money from one category to another at God’s direction – spend less there to have more here

Whether time decisions, thought decisions, or money decisions; there is always God’s way and man’s way. His ways are not our ways. (Isaiah 55:7-9).
Why bother having money tools? Why bother trying to obey with money? Aren’t we just supposed to manage it the best we can? No – that is not the way God thinks. (See Relationship Topic – Give An Account).
First - God owns all ‘your’ money. It’s his, not yours. Second - He can manage it better than you can. Third, how you view money indicates your heart.
Luke 16:10-11 clearly states – that if you don’t obey with money – the little – how will you be faithful with much? The true riches God wants to give you?
