Today I am facing a large Vet Bill. My sons dog was under my watch and it appears that her leg will be need to be x-rayed and beyond. I am already running a tight ship and this feels a bit overwhelming. Do you ever feel this way?
My Lent goal is to be a better steward of my finances. I have been a bit better but still a long way from my goals. Tithing is something I have not been good at. I give, but never a full 10% plus. This is a bit embarrassing considering I want to have a wellness ministry.
I think it is difficult to give when you feel like you don’t have enough. Often do it anyway and never seem to miss the money or the time. The reward I get from giving is much greater then the reward I get from holding back. Yet when times like facing a big vet bill come up I am reminded that my giving is not even close to what it should be.
During Lent we are reminded that it is from dust we come and from dust we will return. Only what we do for Jesus Christ will last.
Putting God first in our time and finances is a great way to be healthy in these areas. Yet it is a difficult thing to do when this world is pulling greatly at both of those resources. I obviously do not have the answers. I do recognize it is a problem for me, I guess this is the first step. What about you? Are you healthy in your time and finances?
Mark 8:36 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”
Be fit and be blessed,
