Saving is making provision for tomorrow, but debt is presumption upon tomorrow.

The Scripture tells us that it’s simply foolish to spend all we have. While we might be tempted or even encouraged to spend more and more, doing so limits the opportunity to prepare for the future.

In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has (Proverbs 21:20).

Do you ever feel like you devour or spend all you have? At the end of the month, many individuals or families look at their checking account and realize there is nothing left for giving or saving. One of the best ways we can overcome this issue is to pay ourselves after we give each month. Once the money has been marked as savings and moved beyond immediate reach or access you are much less likely to spend it.
