Where, when, how and with what do you spend money?
Isaiah 55:2 asks, “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food”.
Hmmm…the subtitle of this chapter in Isaiah is “An Invitation to the Thirsty”. The bible has thousands of verses on financial principles, but what about the details? The things that for the most part are not part of a financial planning discussion and come together at the spur of a moment or based on convenience or circumstances at the time.
This week on Financial Grace we’re going to discuss some details about spending money. If you earn $1000 where is it deposited? If you spend $100 where, when and with what do you pay for it? If you spend $10,000 how do spend that money? And if you spend $100,000 or more how do spend that? There is order and harmony in God’s plan and accessing cash requires order and harmony – not restricted systems that reinforce scarcity and fear, but efficient, flexible, simple systems.
