Crazy Money! A Thoroughbred and Trust
It’s Crazy Money Day!
Horses are absolutely beautiful animals, but I don’t trust them. I’ve had one too many unpleasant experiences. Of course, I’ve had minimal riding lessons – just trail riding or trying to ride at a friend’s ranch. Horses attract buyers from around the world if they have a good race track record or show great potential. Their purchase price is one thing; maintenance costs are altogether another!
Fusaichi was the most expensive thoroughbred of all time, selling for $70 million. At one point, the 2000 Kentucky Derby winner had a stud fee of $150,000. King Solomon owned 12,000 horses and 1,400 chariots. It was a statement of his military might. Yet, his father, King David wrote in Psalm 20:
“Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
Can you say the same? Do you trust the Lord or just say that you trust the Lord? David fully trusted God to grant him victory. Perhaps you need a financial victory. Nothing is too big for God. Humbly come before Him and acknowledge your need. Confess and repent of ways that you may have mismanaged money. Ask Him to help you steward well. Now trust Him, then begin wisely handling the resources that He entrusts to you. Remember some trust in horses, but we trust our God!
