“Go to the ant you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise; it has no commander nor overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provision in summer and gathers its food at harvest” – Prov 6:6-8 (NIV)
Every life will have its moments of up and down, just as all nations go through economic cycles including recession. The best way to manage those periods of scarcity is to plan for the lean seasons, through the habit of saving.
When the ancient nation of Egypt underwent a severe time of famine it was able to prosper unlike others because it had saved grain for the lean times (Genesis 41:29- 36). This had been able because God had revealed to Joseph the drought to come who then shared with Pharaoh the meaning of his difficult dreams.
Saving is therefore an old Biblical principle. There will be high times in the life of every believer. Do not use those times carelessly and take to the habit of living like there is no tomorrow. Saving will enable you pass through successfully such lean times.
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus of Nazareth that I know the power of saving so as to help me pass successfully through those lean times!
