Preserve income.

To manage wealth, you must know what you have. Money comes and goes quickly, but knowing the condition of your flocks allows you to manage it.

When Solomon wrote this passage, flocks represented money to people. Whether you had one sheep or a dozen, they represented assets you could barter or sell for provision. As with cash, the better you managed your flocks, the more wealth you had.

We use Mint to manage our money. Opening the free app instantly gives us a financial picture of what we have. With one glance, we can look at all assets and take account of our flocks. Each month, we tithe, save, and live on the rest. 

Tithing puts God first in our lives and finances. As a step of faith, we trust the Lord’s provision, knowing He can do more with 90% than I can 100%. Learning and applying God’s financial plan will give you healthy flocks.

Human labor and divine provision combine to create healthy flocks.

Lord, forgive us for not taking good care of our flocks. Please help us know the condition of our finances and apply Your teachings to what You give us. Provide the faith we need to put You first in all things. IJNIP. Amen
