Daily Verse: “Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.” Prov. 14:4

Oxen build wealth.

Farmers used oxen to pull the plows, which tilled the fields and prepared them for planting.  The more ox a farmer possessed, the faster and larger fields he could harvest.

“We need more oxen,” Ron says.  In our first few years of marriage, we attended a financial class that described oxen as investments that made money for you without having to work.  Savings accounts, mutual funds, retirement accounts, and real estate build wealth slowly over time, oxen at work for you.

Adding oxen to your financial plan will give you abundant crops over time.  Farmers know seeds don’t yield crops overnight; it takes months to reap the rewards of their efforts.  Acorn, a financial app that invests your spare change into a savings account, allows you to plant seeds continually without noticing.  Small beginnings lead to significant rewards; from an acorn, you eventually get an oak tree.

Find ways to add oxen to your financial plan.  Let them do the heavy lifting, giving you abundant crops.

Lord, thank You for giving us oxen to work for us.  Please help us find ways to add more oxen to our financial plan, letting them build wealth for us over time.  Bless our efforts as we honor You with our money.  IJNIP. Amen
