Not Staying In The Shadows

A listener wants to give money to his friends, but his reasoning makes Dave think he shouldn't be so anonymous.

QUESTION: Listener wants to give money anonymously to some friends out of state who haven’t made smart money decisions and have recently had some emergency-type bills. How can he do that? Dave says so, but then says why this listener shouldn’t be so anonymous.

ANSWER: Call their pastor and ask to give money, then they can pass it on to your friends. But ask yourself if you are really helping them. Maybe you don’t need to be anonymous. Maybe you need to love your friends enough to tell them the truth and say that they haven’t always made the best financial decisions and it’s time for them to straighten up.
