Fit Bit (Financial Fitness)

Fit Bit (Financial Fitness)
Recently, I was in Big Sky, Montana.  It was truly God’s country.  The Mountains were breathtaking and the people were kind and relaxed.  I had an amazing desire to relocate and be a part of it permanently.  One thing I was doing out there was living in vacation mode.  Vacation mode for me is spending money at a higher rate then I normally do and leaving all my responsibility behind.  Of course I felt great!  The reality is, even if I move to Big Sky, I will still need to be living in this world.

When living in this world, I need to make a conscious effort not to be of this world, especially in a place where I am around, ”Big Money”.  When in Big Sky, there was a lot of wealth and I really did want to be a part of that.  I found myself fantasizing about living in the 5+ Million dollar homes and having the $1500 ski jacket.  WOW!  That is so not my reality.  But it was certainly a strong desire of mine while I was there.  There is nothing wrong with those things and how wonderful if one can afford it, but my fire fighter salary will not provide that.  The truth is I do live in abundance.  I think financial fitness starts with being grateful and generous with what you have.  If I live in envy, I am likely to run up my credit cards and be plagued by debt quickly.  When I over spend I feel strapped and can’t be generous with what I have. 

So today, I will appreciate my financial fitness with gratitude and generosity.

Proverbs 11:28  “ He that trusteth in his riches shall fall:  but the righteous shall flourish like a branch.”
Proverbs 22:7  “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is a servant to the lender.”
“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?”

I hope this Fit Bit helped you today.

Be fit and be blessed,
