Savings Day – Eliminate Toxic Financial Habits
Do you have toxic financial habits?
Love Canal near Niagara Falls was one of the worst health and environmental tragedies that ever occurred on American soil. The canal was turned into a dumpsite for chemical waste during WWII. The company responsible for the pollutants covered it with earth and clay to contain it. Then they sold it to the city for one dollar. Years later, home building and heavy rains disturbed the soil. Toxins surfaced causing cancer, birth defects, and miscarriages. It was a complete disaster. Likewise, the effects of toxic financial attitudes and behavior can be disastrous.
God’s principles are for our good. When we believe that, we step out in faith. Then, we can confess and repent of the mistakes we’ve made and the lies we’ve believed. We replace the toxic beliefs with wisdom from above so that we can live the lives God planned for us. James, a brother of Jesus said: “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” (James 1:5-6) So stand firm and eliminate financial toxins with 3 tips:
1. Recognize God as the owner of everything. This will motivate you to steward wisely.
2. Live on a budget. That will reveal waste and identify toxic spending.
3. Monitor your expenses. This will give you the ability to save and help you reach your goals.
