Savings Day – Learn to Wait
Recently we’ve all been learning to be more patient and to wait.
Waiting’s hard especially when credit cards make it easy not to! The problem is, our waiting muscle grows weak from lack of exercise. We’re not grateful for what we have and we don’t learn to save for the future. More importantly, we miss out on seeing God provide!
Delaying a purchase gives time to save, pray, and look for deals. Greater joy and gratitude comes after a period of watching and waiting. We’ve seen God work in big and small ways, through strangers and the body of Christ. As a result, we know that we can trust Him. You can too. In Psalm 27 David said: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14)
