Pearls of Wisdom # 10 – Ignorance Is Expensive!

Ignorance is expensive.  Going through your life with your head in the sand around money can be costly to you in lost time, lost opportunities, late fees, service charges and interest costs.  If you have not established a plan for your money to work for you properly, you could be sentencing yourself to spending more years in the workforce than necessary because you didn’t start saving or you weren’t saving enough.  You could be paying a higher price than you know.  You could be giving away both money and years!

Or worse yet, what if you looked back and found out that you were saving enough money but you failed to put it to work for you in the right types of vehicles, and as a result you still had to work longer?  Now that would be really disappointing. We have all seen and talked to too many people that we know and love, lamenting over their fixed incomes not being enough to live an enjoyable or abundant lifestyle.

You have to check in and check up on your money.  This is not the place to fall asleep at the wheel.  Good stewardship requires conscious awareness.

Can you imagine how great it could be to:

* Move forward in your money!

* Gain mastery over your money!

* Be confident that your money is working for you!

Are you ready to stop robbing Peter to pay Paul?

Are you ready to know what is right for your specific situation and stop trying to compare yourself to your coworkers, neighbors or family members?  Their walk is NOT your walk.

Are you ready to be equipped with the tools and knowledge to help you make choices that honor your values, dreams and goals?

Are you ready to stop worrying and waiting for the next financial shoe to drop?

Ignorance Of The Law is No Excuse!



“Ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it!”  That’s what the police officer is saying when he pulls you over for doing 55 mph in a 35mph zone.  Just because you didn’t see the signs posted, doesn’t give you the permission to zoom through the neighborhood.  The laws stand for all of us, and apply to all of us, whether we are walking in them with full knowledge, or operating under them in ignorance.  It still applies.

Why not start incorporating and operating under God’s spiritual laws over your money?  There are some really good ones out there.  One of my favorites is The Power to Get Wealth (Duet 8:18)

Go and read it for yourself in your free time.  Never mind – I will give it to you now in case you get internet ADD and forget.  “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (NKJV).

So be clear that there are two parts to that verse.  First every gift, talent, opportunity and ability you have to create, build or provide of value – has been God given.  He is your source.  The second critical part of that verse is that He didn’t give you the power just to sit on your lazy boy recliner all fat and full – He blessed you for a reason.  To establish His covenant.  So you are blessed on a mission.  Enjoy what He provides, and look for ways to be a blessing in His kingdom. Find a need and participate in filling it for God’s glory!

Be Blessed!

You are far more precious than rubies!
