There are so many times I make those “New Years resolution” and it lasts two weeks if I’m lucky. Recently I decided to do another Financial Fast where I stop spending on anything except needs.
Yeah, I’ve failed more than I can count in the last ten days. Wait, it’s only been ten days?!
I have successfully spent money on “wants” at so many stores! And today a group of us at work went to eat a small bite after the career fair out on for separating soldiers.
Talk about a total fail. Adding up all my unnecessary expenses in the last ten days, is say in at around $100! Oh my, I need to get back on this Financial Fast if I’m ever going to pay off bills!
6 You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” 7 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. (Haggai 1:6-7 NIV)
It is important to place careful thought into how we spend the money God blesses us with. How do you steward the money God gives you?
