Setting an Example with Finances
All areas of training begin with our example. We must make the most of every opportunity, sometimes even going out of our way, to lead by example in the area of finances.
Remember that there are always little eyes watching how we do things. This is such an overwhelming thing at times but if we are intentional it can be less so. One of the areas we can create intentional moments is generosity. Are we leading by example when it comes to being generous? Ephesians 4:28 says “If you are a thief, stop stealing. Begin using your hands for honest work, and then give generously to others in need. “ It doesn’t say begin doing honest work and then spend every penny of it on yourself or save every little penny for a rainy day. We are commanded to be generous. We are not born with this innate attitude of generosity. Because we are born selfish, we even have to teach our children to share their toys. Look for opportunities to train in generosity!!
