Give, Save, Live (GSL) is an eight (8) week educational series offered by Anointed Business Solutions. The course is designed to serve as a spiritual guide on how Christians should govern themselves according to the principles of giving, saving, and living in a manner that is consistent with God’s word. GSL is based on the core scriptural principles found in Jeremiah 29:11, which reads:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
In Jeremiah 29:11, God clearly illustrates the principles of GSL as He applies them to His children. In this passage of scripture, God specifically identifies His plans to:
- Save us from destruction by not causing us harm.
- Allow us to live by having a prosperous future.
Whereas Satan is a thief who comes only to “steal, and to kill, and to destroy”, God is clearly the watchman and protector who gave us His Son Jesus to save us from not only Satan, but also from ourselves and the destructive nature of our free will so that we “might have life” and that we “might have life more abundantly” (John 10:10).
GSL is not and should not be confused with personal financial counseling or advising. Rather, the lessons taught in GSL are and should only be used as scripturally based guidelines for all Christians to live by in order to receive the blessings of Abraham in their lives.
