Since money is one of those topics that is "taboo", I am just going to quote JM's words in Make Today Count. To me, this is why one should strive to be a good steward of money in general.
"Mondy is another pair of hands ot heal and feed and bless the desperate families of hte earth... In other words, money is my other self. Money can go where I do not have time to go, where I do not have a passport to go. My money can go in my place and heal and bless and feed and help. A man's money is an extension of himself. " THat' true of your money only if you're willing to part with it. One last quote by Gun Denhart, "Money is like manure. IF you let it pile up, it just smells. ut if you spread it around, you can encourage things to grow."
Andrew Carnegie said he wanted to spend the first half of his life making money and the second half giving it away. Pretty good philosophy.
So, have you made any decisions on how you'd like to view money? Or how you'd like to spend it or save it or give it away?! One of the things I say on a regular basis is, "It won't come to you, if it doesn't flow through you!" I believe that.
Have a good weekend. I think we might just be dangerously close to our final Daily Dozen of things that can change your life immediately. Are you taking them to heart? Have you made any changes/ commitments that you'd like to mention. Regarding... thinking, commitments, priorities, faith, finances, attitude, health, family, relationships, generosity, values or growth?!
Makes ya think, huh?
