In which direction are your finances heading in? Money is not designed to stay with you forever it should flow to some degree in and out of your life. But, the million-dollar question is in which direction is it flowing.
For most of my life, I can honestly say that my finances were not always flowing in the right direction. It would come in through hard work and quickly flow out through a lack of financial disciplines. This was a repeat cycle in my life for a very very long time. The only solution in my mind to all my money problems was just to work harder but what I discovered was no matter how much harder I worked or longer hours I put in on the job nothing seems to work. This problem seems to move and adjust to my income.
Its sort of like that old Bruce Lee saying "Be Like Water". He would say that you have to be like water that when your opponent expands your contract and when your opponent contracts you expand. Well, that's exactly what Mammon was doing to me. He was moving with me at the ready to absorb any and all new revenue leaving me back at square one each and every time.
Now that I am a little older and a little bit wiser I understand what was happing to me all those years. You see my finances were pointing in every which way but loose as the saying goes. I had no real plan for my money. I had not sat down and mapped out a strategic plan for my future. Therefore my money was free to move about the country as another saying/slogan goes.
It is vitally important that we all get up the courage to face off with all the things that hinder our money from going out from us and returning to us. This means savings and investments must take priority in our financial outlook. No longer can it just be about earning and spending any longer? The sooner you wake up to the fact that if something doesn't change nothing will.
If this is you and where you are right now in your life please stop and think about the direction of not just your finances but your life. God is calling for and setting a standard of stewardship in the Body of Jesus Christ and with this standard comes rules and regulations that you must know and understand to get your finances headed in the direction that He, not the world wants them to go in.
