Christ’s Message For Family Finances

Render unto God that which is God’s, and unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s.

So said Jesus when the elite of the time tried to trip him up with a question about a Roman coin.

I cannot find anything in the New Testament that says God will give us every material good we desire.

Some call this the cosmic bell hop God, bring me this, bring me that, I want that car, I need that house.

The Christmas story is not one of God sending his Son to earth to spread the wealth. . . of gold and diamonds and emeralds or other stuff.

Christ’s message is love your neighbor as yourself, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Well, if you lent someone money, you would want them to pay it back.

But let’s back up the truck.

Why did I borrow that money in the first place?

This time of year, to make Santa look good?

To make my kids love me?

To keep my spouse happy?

There is no older lesson than that money does not mean happiness, yet we re-learn it all the time.

Or maybe we do not learn it.

There is no merit to borrowing someone else’s money, yes, even VISA’s, to give stuff to someone.

The most valuable commodity we have, the only thing that is irreplaceable, is our time.

Give that to your children and your family this Christmas season.

Don’t borrow money to look good, to feel good about your self and what you can provide to others.

Feel good until the bills come in January, that is.

Listen to your loved ones, tell them that is what they are,  your loved ones.

And don’t spend the New Year paying off the debts of the past year.

Merry Christmas to all!

Peace to men of good will.

Does My Small Business Need A Business Budget?

The picture is what happens to a business without a budget. We talk about having a family budget, or the family finances fail. This principal applies to a family business even more. Most people open up their small business on Monday, thinking they will pay themselves Friday with their first week’s profits. That is notContinue Reading

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog iin the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m loooking
    for somdthing completely unique. P.S Sorryy for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I hardly leave a response, however I read a great deal of comments on What Shape Are My Family Finances
    In? – Detroit Bankruptcy Lawyer Kurt O’Keefe. I actually do have 2 questions
    for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like some of these remarks appear like they are written
    by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online
    sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of every one of your social community sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  4. I’m no longer positive where you are getting your information, but great topic.

    I needs to spend some time finding out more or working out more.
    Thanks for excellent information I used to be on the lookout
    for this information for my mission.
