Savings Day – Transformation
It’s Build Your Savings Day! Remember when Peter stepped out of the boat? He stepped into the sacred space of letting go and trusting totally.
Are you willing to step out, and let God mold you into faithful stewards for His use?
In the Blue Book by Jim Branch, a chapter titled In Between discusses how life is lived between the now and the not yet – between questions and answers.
He writes: “Help us to step into the mystery of that sacred space here and now – knowing that it will be a place of genuine change and true transformation.”
Transformation is a change of heart in which one’s disposition and temper are conformed to the divine image; from enmity to holiness and love.
God can transform you! You can become a saver! Step out of the world and its financial philosophy and trust Christ and His principles. He can mold you into humble stewards. By abandoning bad habits and adopting new ones, you can start to save.
Did you know that saving $20 each week can fund a thousand dollar emergency fund? If you think you don’t have an extra $20, think again!
A survey revealed that every month the average American spends $20 on coffee, $400 eating out. Throw in cable, streaming services, impulse purchases, and suddenly a whopping $1500 is going toward non-essentials every month!
Now if you saved that money alone over 12 months, you’d have $18,000!
So “Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…” (Romans 12:2) Step into that sacred space!
