“Time and Consistency”
 How many of us understand that life doesn’t stop moving forward? We always will need money to live. Unforeseen things happen. It’s life. Because of this, we need to have money saved. Being a good steward of God’s money is wise. To be financially healthy, this needs to be on our minds every day. We need to be good stewards of what we have. Saving for a rainy day, putting your money to work, and multiplying your money is the wise thing to do.
“The wise store up choice food in Olive oil, but fools gulp theirs down.” (Proverbs 21:20)
 Wow! If that isn’t direct enough…
“The plans of the diligent lead to profit, as surely as haste leads to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5)
 How do we do this? A powerful key to achieving financial security are two elements: the rate of return and consistency.
 It pays to start investing early. When you’re young, you can save small amounts and end up with much, but if you wait to begin saving, you’ll need to save much more! One thing for sure, many of us cannot afford the high cost of waiting, so now is the time to begin if you have not started yet.
Many people don’t have thousands of dollars to invest all at once. They must invest smaller amounts over time to build their wealth. Consistency is the fuel that makes your investments grow.
I encourage you to start investing even the tiniest amount you may have. Stay consistent, and don’t take away from it. Before long, your efforts of diligence will pay off.
And remember what The Bible says about wisdom.
Please use this wisdom to make greater financial decisions for your future. May God bless the efforts you choose to grow your money.
