The Adventist Review highlights a recent story in a top business managazine on Seventh-day Adventists and their relation to health and money. The author “emphasizes many residents’ focus on exercise, recreation, and social ties,” which can, in turn, “help keep health-care costs down,” and how habits of industriousness, frugality, and tithing are key elements of money management.
