Savings Day – Your Finances in Changing Times
Do you feel unsettled?
In 1975, our founder, the late Larry Burkett wrote his first best-selling book, Your Finances in Changing Times. This foundational work was written before personal computers, mobile phones or electronic banking. Here are a few key excerpts. Quote:
“I believe we’re going to see ever intensifying recessionary and inflationary spirals. During the inflationary periods, Americans will experience higher and higher prices. These prices will be caused by more and more money being created and disbursed into the market, with fewer and fewer products being produced to offset this new money. Government controls will expand, causing increased subsidies with fewer people contributing. Combined with the higher prices will be higher taxes. During the recessions, more individuals will become unemployed as basic industries contract. Many of these people will be added to the government payrolls in an effort to appease those being hurt by the system. It will almost be a necessity for the government to have total control of the money supply through some form of nationalization of the banking interests. I believe that, ultimately, we can look for a new, cashless system. This is the kind of system that must exist prior to the Age of apostasy in the last days.” End quote.
Now many things are happening around us that are unsettling. However, our house is built upon the rock so we have nothing to fear. We must not allow our lives to be defined by or controlled by money. It may leave us, but He never will.
