Prep While You Can
Are you financially preparing for the times we’re in?
There’s plenty of reasons to be financially wise these days. There are supply chain issues, inflationary pressures, and the prospect of worldwide food shortages. We don’t know if, when, or how these will affect us. However, taking simple steps today will enable us to confidently face tomorrow. I recommend you cut all unnecessary spending. Save on gas by planning your errands and driving during off-peak traffic times. Shop frugally by planning ahead. Buy items in bulk at warehouse stores to avoid future price hikes. Comparison-shop, use coupons, and study weekly ads. Buy extra whenever you can. Need a bag of rice? Then buy two. Oats? Get multiples. Do this week after week to fill your pantry. Accumulate at least 6 months of food for your family. Should we face a major food crisis, you’ll be able to feed them, share with others or barter for items that you need.
Regardless of what happens in the economy, keep an eternal perspective. Continue to give, save and invest your money. Interest rates are rising, so don’t rely on credit cards. Whether we face inflation or a recession, let’s do our part while trusting the Lord. Take comfort in what Isaiah said in Chapter 41 verse 10: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” With Him, we can face any challenges with faith not fear!
