One of the poorest choices of words I hear people say is “I don’t have any money”. The fact of the matter is we live in a country that is so wealthy even people who don’t work have money in the form of government assistance. The problem is how we use what we actually have.
When I hear the statement “I don’t have any money” I immediately think “how have you used the money you DO have?” We all make mistakes with money. Some of us make bigger mistakes than others. The difference in those who experience difficulty and forever after say “I don’t have any money” and those who experience difficulty and bounce back from it is simple. The ones who bounce back LEARN from their mistakes and don’t repeat them.
Dave Ramsey has a phrase he likes to use regarding the lack of money. He says “there is one place to go when you’re broke, TO WORK.” That is so true, and when we go to work and make some money we should manage it in a way that positions us to win. Are we giving, saving, and managing the rest with a plan that honors God for the blessing?
