The Footstool Meaning

“But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool... All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.”

— Matthew 5:34-37, excerpt —

Since I started my practice, I have known one thing for certain—this is God’s business, and my job is to steward it with integrity. There’s no value in making special promises because everything we say and do for our clients is held to a higher standard of honesty and trust.

This verse from Matthew also tells us that the earth and this life we live today is God’s footstool. He is sovereign, and we cannot control the ultimate course of our lives. We can, however, prepare with wisdom. We can seek the advice of leaders who know the way. That is our hope for you; that we will become your financial footstool, a place to lay down your worries and trust that someone who cares is going to show you the way.
