MEET YOUR MOTIVATOR MONDAY!
What's your Money Attitude?
-You give money in exchange for what you want
-What you want represents who you are
-Who you are is an expression of where and what you have been through
-Where you have been is attributable to your decisions or decisions taken on your behalf.....
-Decisions are products of your level of wisdom per time....
Look at this interesting scripture below.
Ecc 7:12 (Message Version)
Money is good no doubt.
Wisdom is better when it's paired with money
Especially if you get both whilst you're still living
Double protection; wisdom and wealth.
Plus this bonus: wisdom energizes it's owner
Money is good but with wisdom, it's better utilized......"
No one can better define money and it's importance than the bible. Isn't it amazing that God's word says money is better utilized when it's paired with wisdom? And that's why we are here; to glean from one another wisdom on how to manage our finances and to take better money-decisions.
Money is a tool, a means of achieving your wants. Like a car that drives you around, your house that keeps you safe, your clothes that cover your nakedness, so is money; it's useful to get whatever it is you want. You should be your money's boss, master; and not the other way round. Abundance or lack of it shouldn't control you, make you sick, depressed or go overboard( too much money do make people do crazy things sometimes).
Being the last day of November 2015, today is a good time again to take stock of where you are, where you want to be and how. Whether indebted, or in surplus, God is ready to come through for you. Take charge, take responsibility, be accountable to God as a Steward.
By the end of this current financial-academic year, I see you obtaining a new degree, and it's none other than a Master of Money Affairs( MMA)....
And so on a lighter note, if we do a spot check on your bag/wallet now,what do we find? Crumpled notes in different corners of your bag, or do you keep your money in your bra, or at the tip of your wrapper! Ooops.( No Smart Steward here does that I'm sure).
Get ready for your anticipated new levels; Be deliberate, Talk rich, Act rich, Dream big. An adage in yoruba says "what I will not accomodate when I'm rich, I will not accept when I'm poor". Don't allow people talk to you anyhow! Invest in a good wallet, get at least a note of the currencies you'd love to spend in their millions ( I like dollars, pounds and Canadian dollars) ; Set them properly in the wallet, prophesy daily on them. Let your wallet look and feel rich!
Have a good money attitude. You attract what you place good value on.
I leave you with this:
"Laughter and bread go together
And wine gives sparkle to life
But it's money that makes the world go around"
Ecc 10:19( Message Version)
It's a great day to be alive ....Woohoo!
On a daily basis, we feature words of financial wisdom from different Smart Stewards members and sometimes from Guest Contributors. You'd be glad reading them. Enjoy!
