Christians struggling with debt and other money-related issues can look to the Bible for advice of financial management, famed Evangelical Pastor Billy Graham advises in a post-Christmas Q&A.
Graham, 97, suggests in the Q&A published Monday on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website that God cares about the financial well-being of all people, as "He is concerned about everything that concerns us."
