Welcome to the line within us, a podcast, serving Christian men who are hungry to be the leaders. They are predestined to be. I’m your host, Chris Granger. Let’s jump in at this week, guys. This is your fun Friday. So we’re going to relax a little bit. We’re going to have a little bit of fun with this. It’s been a great week.
We had a great topic. We talked about wealth specifically. Building wealth Yazzie. If you remember, we had Jeff Long on and he had a wonderful insight on how to build wealth, the godly way and the verse of the week, Deuteronomy eight 18. But you would remember the Lord, your God for it is he who is giving you the power to make wealth, to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your fathers as it is this day.
So remember. God first and through him, you have the power to build well, it’s right there in the Bible. I know it’s the old Testament flipped back, guys. You’ll find it in Deuteronomy that if you look back through our wins, the episode, There was a ton of insights. And the thing that I remember the most about talking with Jeff is God’s path first.
You know, he went to the Bible college, he was working at the church, but you know what, God had a different plan for his life and that’s okay. You know, and when he submitted to that and decided to follow what God is doing, It blossomed for him. And he has an entrepreneurial spirit and that has led him to, to unbelievable success.
And through that, he’s been able to get into the real estate investing world. And that’s where he shared with us this week. And he had so many good tips, not going to recap them all, go back and listen to it. The one. That I remember the most is that 1% rule, whereas the 1% of your, of your property value that’s your that’s typically can be your rent, but there were so many good ways about how to get started, how to do it the right way.
Right? And if you have that entrepreneurial desire and you want to lean into real estate investing, do it, do it the right way though, build some safety nets and some rules around so that when you start investing. You and your family can be comfortable with it. You know, you want to make sure you’re on the same page with your wife first and foremost, but put some rules out there, make them in your own.
Don’t making someone else’s naked specific to you. You are the lion leading your family, not anyone else, but you’ll map out your own journey and you’ll figure out those steps, you know, but the key to all this is starting right. And we have to be smart about how we start. So great episode talking about real estate and.
Tons of insight there. Check that out. There are lots of show notes and things like that. Now your three tips this week, you health, wealth, and self tip. Let’s talk about a health tip for the week. Basically. I want to take you back to the, to, to the roots of how you get strong. Pushups and pull ups. Now I know guys, this stuff is, is overlooked so much, but one thing you can start incorporating into your workout routine to really build your health back up is the basic stuff of push up and pull up, you know, challenge yourself, the cool part about pushups and pull off of this.
They’re free. You don’t have to pay a gym. They’re also hard and they’re challenging. So maybe start off with five and maybe your, your pull up challenge is one, right? But you’ll build it up. You’ll build those muscles. And then as you do it, keep a little log, but work on those pushups in the pull-ups.
Cause that’s some core muscle groups that really can help you build strength. Now our wealth tip for this week, we talked a lot about investing in building wealth. Before you do that. Get your finances in order, eliminate consumer debt and get down to just that mortgage before you start taking on this step, because you know what?
I coach a lot of people, anxiety, stress. They come to those who act too quickly. When you try to put the cart in front of the horse, I get it. You want to invest, everybody does. But if you have this mountain of debt slowly, You’re not going to have any gains. You know, I made the analogy to a lot of people about a boat that’s taking on water, you know, and he’s just constantly pouring out.
Well, as you pouring it out, more’s coming in until you plug the holes. So plug the holes in your boat, then you can sell that thing to financial freedom. So there’s your wealth tip. Get your finances right now. Yourself tip. Okay. Share with your kids to ideas of passive income strategies. Now there are new.
To a lot of people, you know, but you’re their hero and this is a new strategy for you. Let them tag along on a journey. As you learn stuff. As Jeff mentioned, he took courses. He read books, things like that. Now it’s age appropriate stuff. If you have toddlers, they’re not going to be able to do so much, but teach them age appropriately.
Diff the difference in passing. And what that can mean for you and why you’re interested in them because you know what? You have an opportunity right now as a lion, leading your family to change to the structure, to change the outcome, to change the future. Take it upon yourself to teach them and really be intentional about this.
So there’s yourself tip, do your teaching. So push-ups get your finances right. Share with your kids. Okay. Now the book of the week is thou shall prosper. So great book. It really follows along. The 10 commandments from a financial standpoint. So there’s links in the show notes. Check that one out. It’s a fun read.
It’s a lot of good insight in that book. I’ve definitely encouraged that one. Now dad, jokes of the week got two of them as usual and reply back. Let us know which one works. Maybe neither one of them did, but love to know. So dad joke. Number one. Are you ready? Fellas? I tried to cry. I’m a really tall tower in France, but I fall off.
Got it. So see how that would flash. Now the second one, a priest, an atheist, and a rabbit walking to the bar. The rabbit says guys, I’m pretty sure I’m a typo. So there you go. So use those that will, hopefully they’d get a little chuckle out of you. Remember the question of the week? Do you have realistic expectations on how fast building wealth will take?
I know you want it quick. But sometimes the best thing is in life. Take time and that’s okay. So remember your verse Deuteronomy eight 18, but you are to remember the Lord, your God for it is he who has given you the power to make wealth, to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your fathers as it is this day.
Had a great week, keep focused on building wealth. This iron sharpening iron, we will get better together. Share this with others. Don’t put it in your pocket, share it with others. I’m challenging right now, text three buddies about the line within us, because it’s through that intentional act that you will help the line within us improve their families, and then their families will improve three more families in the ripples.
Big. And you know what, we’re not going to put God in a box in the line with, within us. We’re going to let God do all the work that he wants to do, and we’re just going to be his vehicle.
