Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man's dwelling, but a foolish man devours it. --Proverbs 21:20
Making good choices regarding the legacy and future of your family is vitally important. And as it says in the verse above, it’s foolish to spend everything you have! We are to save money, as well as spend money.
But the problem is that many families today haven’t built the financial firewall of spending money wisely. Their expenses exceed their income…and as a result, they’re bridging the gap with more and more debt!
But accumulating excessive debt isn’t wise. And in the limited space I have here, I want to advise you to deal aggressively with paying your creditors.
If you have debt that’s grinding you down, if you have debt that creates pressure in your family, if you have debt that keeps you from giving as God would have you give, it’s time you began to take a hard look at your spending habits.
So I’d like to ask you today, do your spending habits glorify God? Friend, I challenge you to begin making God a partner in your finances today!
YOUR FAMILY MUST BUILD A FINANCIAL FIREWALL OF WISE SPENDING HABITS.
