Do you spend more than you earn? Too often, this is the case with many of us.
When we are wise and generous in heart, we wisely spend less money than we net in order to waste not. This occurs when we closely monitor the relationships responsible for our income as well as our expenses. Solomon recorded, “Be sure to know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations” (Proverbs 27:23-24).
How well do you know the condition of your flocks? This week, when you encounter your staff, customers, or vendors, engage them relationally. Discover their needs and desires, asking questions about their lives, rather than merely business. Listen to their answers and connect their hearts with your organization’s vision, mission, values, objectives, goals, and strategies.
In all things, give careful attention to your relationships in order to waste not your resources, spending less than you net. Demonstrate that God is your passion in the manner in which your resources flow out.
