Don't overspend!

Jonah wants to remind you to stay on budget this Christmas shopping season!  Don't spend money you don't have!  Use this awesome tool to stay on track with your spending this month.

Don't have a budget?  YOU NEED ONE!  A budget doesn't have to be restrictive.  It can be whatever you want it to be!  It's simply a PLAN.  John Maxwell says, "A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went."

As Christians, we are called to be excellent stewards of our money.  It's not ours!  It belongs to our Lord.  Make Him proud with your responsibility of it!  He wants you to enjoy it.  He wants you to share it (and by the way the two are the same : ).  He wants you to owe no man anything but to love him, and to flee from debt with gazelle intensity.

How awesome would it be this Christmas season to pay a single mom's light bill for the next year?  Or pay for the repairs on your friend's car?  Build a well in Africa?  Pay for the coffee for the person after you in line at Starbucks?

Wherever you are in your financial journey, find ways to experience giving (and put it in your budget)!  The more financially stable you are, the more giving you can do.  

Do you have debt payments?  Are you living paycheck to paycheck?  Learn more here about living like no one else so later you can live and give like no one else.
