How do we become a wise and useful steward? We begin by acknowledging that everything we have is a blessing from God. With this thought in mind, we will approach life with an attitude of gratitude—even our household budgets. Getting your own business off the ground requires some sacrifice at home. It means putting enough money away to weather the down months. So as you and your spouse pray for guidance in your budgeting process, here are some practical tips for stretching those dollars.
Tithes and offerings are central to our budget and our lives. By being obedient, we show the Lord that He can trust us. When we manage our finances well, we further develop that trust. Although the process of starting or growing a business can be difficult, by being obedient we can be confident that we will succeed.
