Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
The wise have wealth and luxury but fools spend whatever they get.
We’re wrapping up the Marriage and Money series today, exploring some very practical advice as we seek to be a people free from debt, living on a budget, so we are able to go wherever and whenever God calls us to go. You may be sitting here this morning and thinking back over your financials last year, you incurred more debt, not less, the stress keeps getting worse year-to-year and you can see the financial crisis looming on the horizon. Hopefully God will speak through the message today and you can start taking steps towards a debt-free and budget-driven future.
This morning it is my joy to continue the Marriage and Money series, as we consider 3 very practical and I think helpful “Percentage Rules”. I’ll explain more about what I mean in a minute. Let me just say that today’s message certainly applies to marriages and married couples, but it is NOT just for married folks. The principles and values we’ll discuss today apply to all of us no matter our current married/unmarried status.
