Do you have control of your finances? Or are your finances controlling you? According to Dave Ramsey, taking control of your money is 20 percent brain power and 80 percent behavior. Just because you might know something, doesn’t mean a hill of beans if you don’t put it into practice.
What incentive do you have to become financially stable? To be debt free and have ready cash to buy things is great, but that really is not the end goal. It is so we can give like no other. We were all created in God’s image. God is the biggest giver of all. If you don’t believe that, then you should read John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Being made in his image, we have the potential for being great givers as well.
If you have not had the opportunity to attend Financial Peace, I would encourage you to try and find the next available class and go. It is a behavior worth putting into practice.
