Stewardship Truths #8

A 12 part series discussing stewardship.

By: Barry G. Allen

Live beneath, not within, your means, and save/invest for a rainy day.

Proverbs 21:20 “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.”

Someone has said, “if your out-go exceeds your income then your upkeep will be your downfall.” To live beneath your means requires the deferring of pleasure. In a day of easy credit, we must beware of the self-imposed bondage we can create by carelessly using it. I believe the misuse of debt is the most destructive misuse of any financial tool in our society today.

Remember this: the most nerve-wracking place on earth to live is just beyond your means.

A high percentage of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck and have little or no savings.

Remember this: it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
