IMPORTANT?!

Your checkbook and credit card statements will show what is important and conversely, what is not. The order in which you spend your money and the amount spent say a lot about what is, and is not, important.

Matthew records the words of Jesus who states that “for where you treasure is, there your heart will be also.” He is speaking about storing riches in heaven as opposed to on earth where they can be taken away.

So, what do your financial statements tell you? Are you using the gifts that God has given you to glorify Him or to glorify yourself? One way to help answer this is to apply the 10/10/80 rule. The first 10% goes back to God, the next 10% goes to you (think savings) and the remaining 80% of your income pays for everything else that you need and/or want.

Scripture: Matthew 6:19-21
