To all of the losers out there who didn’t win the mega millions…
Did you do what Wes and I did?
What would we do if we were gifted a BILLION dollars? We totally planned it out last night. What would we buy, who and to what organizations would we give some away, and how we could invest it in some pretty amazing ways. Oh and of course we’d go to Disney World with the kids this Christmas. We joked that the money was basically already spent. A girl can dream, can’t she?
I think the idea of such a large lump of cash is a great segue into our topic for today.
For the first week of our series, we discussed the idea of getting out of debt. This week we are venturing into the idea of staying out of debt.
If you want to have financial freedom, you must stay out of debt. But how is that possible?
By obtaining a large lump of cash, that’s how!
So whether it’s through some luck of the draw (yeah, I wouldn’t count on this one), through an inheritance, or by saving it up little by little, that lump of cash is possible and will give you such relief when the storms of life come! You won’t feel like you are are always just treading murky waters of money mayhem.
So maybe it’s only one in a zillion that you’d be a billionaire someday…(So you’re telling me there’s a chance! If you know what movie this quote is from, nice job but I also don’t endorse the film lol.)
BUT you really could be a millionaire by saving little by little. (And investing that saved money…we’ll talk more about that next week).
Did you know that the Bible even talks about this?
Proverbs 13:11: "Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.”
Did you read that? Fast money goes fast!
So you can thank the Lord that you didn’t win the lottery and that He is teaching you how to actually grow your wealth for His glory. I truly believe that when we faithfully gather little by little, we are being wise stewards of the funds God has given us. And we may well be on our way to finding freedom in our finances.
Until next time…be growing your little cash plants :)
