Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor.
Money is a shelter – it offers some protection in the world. Those who have money can afford the things they need to be secure (insurance, home repairs, medical treatment).
However, being wise is more important because it allows you to stretch your finances and maintain them so that they are there when you need them. Your wisdom indirectly preserves your life.
Take a step:
1. Who do you know that could use some financial wisdom?
2. How can you help them be more financially wise? You could direct them towards resources that will help them. Or casually, during conversations, share some of the ways your finances have improved.
Lord, if you open opportunities for me to share what I’ve learned about better stewardship with ________, please help me to share.
