“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”–2 Timothy 2:15
You must learn to manage your resources, so it would be enough not just for you, but those that would be dependent on you. A wealthy person is not known by how much he has or the material possessions in view, but how much of those he can comfortably fend for and how much of investments he has. Most people think if they earn fat figures, all their challenges would be over. But I beg to differ. If you cannot adequately utilize what you have today, even the “much” would be inadequate.
My husband once said: “If only you can think enough, what you have is actually enough.” You need to be constantly aware of your economic environment in order to be financially successful. There is a need to dive into various opportunities around; by thinking of places you could grow your income and add to your profits.
It is important that as you build resources for the pursuit of your purpose, you endeavour to also develop adequate financial management skills. This is because human needs are insatiable. Most of the time, the more you acquire, the more your needs increase and if you don’t learn to invest what you have to meet your ever-growing needs, you might end up not having enough. Therefore, today, think investments and secure a lack-free future.
