What’s the Big Idea?
God calls believers to be wise stewards of money; part of being wise is saving money for future needs. It’s part of God’s good plan for our future!
What’s the Problem?
God has called us to provide for ourselves, our families, and our future; however, we sometimes struggle to save money because we don’t know the truth about saving, we don’t know how to save, or we lack the discipline to save. Here are two examples:
1. Unrealistic Expectations - We don’t really expect anything to go wrong, so we don’t think we need to save.
2. Most of us love to spend money! It’s hard for us to deny ourselves. We live in a consumer-driven culture where passion for spending far outweighs a desire to save. As a result, many of us have credit cards we can’t pay off, so we are unable to set aside money for future expenses at all.
Saving reduces stress and anxiety about our money — it results in flexibility in life and greater freedom to provide for ourselves and our families, both now and in the future.
When it comes to saving, the cultural messages we hear today tell us:
Sometimes Proverbs provides unique insights into specific areas of life by looking at nature. The writer of the Proverbs makes some interesting observations that relate to our everyday lives and then provides practical application.
