Golden Nugget:  Plan your saving and spending”



Resources:  www.christiandevotions.us posts Faith & FINANCES, Bible-based devotions aimed to help readers apply God’s financial principles in their lives—every Tuesday a new finance devotion posts.


Also listen the interview with financial minister, Chris Stocklin:  http://www.christiandevotions.us/radio.html



Ron Blue teaches simple saving principals.

1.  Patient Savings Plan:  Save $21 a week or exactly $83. a month with 8% yield = $259,000 in forty years. 

Now, right now you may not find 8%, but save your money in an account (CD possibly).    

Older than 20?  Save more than $83.33 per month to catch up, if you can.


 2.  Ron Blue also teaches a principal called:  Opportunity Cost

This means the item you purchase for $20 cost you more because it’s a lost opportunity to earn money.  How much more would the twenty dollars mean to you in 20, 30, 40 years?  The item doesn’t cost $20, it cost the money you could have earned if the money had been invested instead.
