The American dream! Who doesn’t long for financial security, money in the bank and investments for later? The dogged efforts that are required to attain financial freedom keep many people from going after the “brass ring.” Instead, millions are spent on lottery tickets. Perhaps “luck” will replace diligence and hard work. Money is not the only thing we would really like a lot of. Good relationships with family, friends, and God are not things that we just stumble into. Daily deposits are needed to maintain a healthy “balance” in each of these accounts. Each day we are either making withdrawals or deposits.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we need Your help as we walk through life. We long for the “good life” but are unable to make it happen. You’ve promised in Your Word that when we acknowledge You, that You will show us the way (Proverbs 3:6). We’re doing that right now.
