Steady investments last.

“Money doesn’t grow on trees,” Mom said. She tried valiantly to teach me positive financial practices. Don’t use credit cards, save as much as possible, and don’t spend money frivolously.

Unfortunately, I learned the lessons slowly, spending money as fast as I earned it and then some. However, after digging myself into a pit of debt and then slowly climbing out of it, I began to follow Mom’s wise teachings based on Biblical principles.

10% tithe + 10%savings + 80% living expenses = prioritized finances

Scripture talks more about money management than salvation. Unfortunately, worshipping the mighty dollar takes the place of God for many people. And the Lord knows the idols we prioritize over Him.

Tithing helps us keep our eyes focused on God and not money. Saving helps us prepare for the unexpected events life brings. Learning to live within our means, not spending every dime we make, lessens stress and invites the Lord’s peace to reign in our finances.

Money disappears quickly, but God’s provision never fails.

Lord, forgive us for prioritizing money over You. Please help us become good stewards of Your provision. Help us set our hearts on You in all areas, including finances. Bless our efforts as we honor You with our money. IJNIP. Amen
