The Wrong Side of Money

Image for The Wrong Side of Money

There are so many ways that we wreck ourselves. Getting on the wrong side of money is one of the biggies. That’s the reason that I shared five ways to crash proof our life in the message last weekend. They are worth repeating.

Live on a written budget.   

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.
The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. (Proverbs 27:12)

Steer clear of debt.

Just as the rich rule the poor,
so the borrower is servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

Build financial margin. 

The wise have wealth and luxury,
but fools spend whatever they get. (Proverbs 21:20)

Set long term goals. 

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity,
but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. (Proverbs 21:5)

Be outrageously generous.

The generous will prosper;
those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)
