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)
