12 Things to do In 2013 #2
Barry Allen

One of the important stewardship truths of the Bible is we Christians should live beneath (not within) our means, and we should save for a rainy day. The wisdom writer put it this way in Proverbs 21:20: “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but the foolish man devours all he has.”

Someone has said, “if your out-go exceeds your income then your upkeep will be your downfall.” To live beneath your means requires the deferring of pleasure and recognizing the self-imposed bondage you can create by carelessly using easy credit.

Remember these two things: (1) the most nerve wracking place on earth to live is “just beyond your means;” and (2) it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
