Proverbs 21:5, "
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty."
"Our source determines our course." What would you say if I told you that you were about to make one million dollars? Now what if I told you that you could spend one million dollars? I can only imagine the houses, cars, boats, and other shopping sprees happening in your imagination. Did you know that if you work for about 40-45 years making $25,000 a year, you will have earned over one million dollars. The question is, do you have a plan for your money? Or a financial advisor you ask for wisdom when it comes to your finances? The good news is, we have the ultimate financial advisor available to us who wants the best for us. God's not shy about money - there are over 2,000 references to money throughout the Bible. God's economy is not like the world's. Over the next few days we will be breaking down the "Give, Give, Live" plan to help you find financial freedom and be in the sweet spot of God's success. Maybe you are meticulous saver and know where every penny goes. Maybe you spend money faster than you earn it. Where ever you land on the spectrum, you will only find true financial peace and success when he is your source.
Act Take some time and honestly evaluate where you are financially. If you missed Sunday's message, watch it today (if you are married, watch it with your spouse), and write down some goals, for example, tithe consistently, pay off debt, update your budget, etc.
Pray God, thank you for your blessings. Help me to trust you with my finances. I admit I need to make some changes and I know you will help me every step of the way. Amen!
