Act Your Wage

Some key thoughts from this past Sunday's sermon:
  • Stop spending money you don't have. Live within your means.
  • Learn to say "no" for a little while so you can say "yes" for the rest of your life.
  • Before going into debt, learn to ask "What will be the real cost of this debt in terms of stressed relationships and lost opportunities in the future?"
  • Train your money. (budget)
  • Pray before you pay. No impulse buying.
  • Plan for emergencies. (The "Oh, no" fund)
  • Eliminate overhead. Use the debt snowball.
  • Build a reserve fund.
  • With hard work, sacrifice, and discipline, you can get out of debt. Remember, God is on your side.
