Saving for Your Future

You must guard against the lie that you have nothing to invest. When it comes to your future, any little bit helps.
T.D. Jakes

The best investment you can make is to get rid of all high-interest, short-term debt.
Ron Blue

Formulate clear-cut investment goals. No one should invest without having an ultimate purpose for the money. You may be laying money aside for education or retirement, but you should have an ultimate, clear-cut financial goal.
Larry Burkett

Budget so that you are able to save a certain percentage of your income each month before you pay any of the other bills you owe.
T.D. Jakes

Financial Freedom

Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap.
Thomas Jefferson

About 5 percent of your net spendable income should be put aside for expenses that cannot be anticipated.
Larry Burkett

There is no portion of our time that is our time, and the rest God’s; there is no portion of money that is our money, and the rest God’s money. It is all His: He made it all, gives it all, and He has simply trusted it to us for His service.
Adolphe Monod

He who will not economize will have to agonize.
Confucius

The amazing effect of my tithing experiment has been twofold: 1) It has completely freed me of the panic fear that used to grip me about being penniless. Now I know that my needs will always be supplied. And 2) it has helped me to know the joy of being a channel through which blessings can flow to those around me. The Lord’s purse is never empty.
Catherine Marshall

Disadvantages of Debt

There can be no freedom or beauty about a home life that depends on borrowing and debt.
Henrick Ibsen

Neither a borrower nor a lender be; for a loan oft loses both itself and friend.
William Shakespeare

By borrowing, many people get ahead of God and wind up doing things He never intended them to do.
Ron Blue

Debt is the slavery of the free.
Publilius Syrus

Think what you do when you run debt; you give to another power over your liberty. If you cannot pay at the time, you will be ashamed to see your creditor; will be in fear when you speak to him; will make poor, pitiful, sneaking excuses, and by degrees come to lose your veracity, and sink into base, downright lying; for the second vice is lying, the first is running in debt.
Benjamin Franklin

The Power of a Budget

A budget can give you a taste of financial success, regardless of your income level.
Larry Burkett

The purpose of a budget is not to restrict your spending but to be a tool for you to determine where your money is presently going, so you can shift funds around to match your long-term goals and priorities.
T.D. Jakes

Managing your finances creates peace of mind. Life costs money, and knowing how much you have and consciously choosing where and how to spend it puts you in the driver’s seat. It allows you to live gracefully as opposed to clutched with fear, anxiety or panic about insufficiency and survival. When you are at ease, your life – and hence your ability to succeed further – just flows better.
Cherie Carter-Scott

The term “budget” has earned a bad reputation unjustly. People who do not live on a budget are not handling their finances efficiently, especially those people who think they don’t need one.
Larry Burkett

Wealth Builder

To save something each month develops self-control. This power frees one from fear and gives abiding courage.
Samuel Reyburn

He that gets all he can honestly, and saves all he gets (except necessary expenses), will certainly become rich.
Benjamin Franklin

Keep adding little to little, and soon there will be a great heap.
Virgil

Financial freedom comes to people who save ten percent or more of their income throughout their lifetime.
Brian Tracy

Never spend as much money as you earn. The smaller your expenditures are in proportion to your earnings the sooner you will become rich.
E.W. Scripps

Financial Freedom

You must determine what your lifestyle priorities are and live accordingly. Your decisions must be based on your plan and not the pressures from family or society to live a certain way.
T.D. Jakes

Don’t expect financial rewards to come quickly or easily. It took me fifteen years to build up an income that exceeded our family’s monthly needs.
Ross Perot

Thousands upon thousands are yearly brought into a state of real poverty by their great anxiety not to be thought poor.
Robert Mallet

There’s only one way to maintain your wealth, and that is simply this: spend less than you earn and invest the difference.
Anthony Robbins

True financial success is impossible without a spirit of gratitude. If you can’t appreciate what you have now, you won’t be able to appreciate anything you get later.
Larry Burkett

Financial Freedom

More money is not the answer; more discipline is. Until you decide to live on what you already make, more money will not help.
Larry Burkett

Your plan to get wealth must include a willingness to do what you do best regardless of whether you are in the spotlight or behind the scenes, if you receive adequate compensation or are underpaid.
T.D. Jakes

He who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Proverbs 13:11

God can release financial increase to those who will not be controlled by the love of money.
T.D. Jakes

As a kid, my dad made us value everything we ever earned. If I wanted a new pair of skates, I had to caddy for weeks to earn the money to buy them. If I needed a new stick, I cleaned out the stalls in our local hockey rink to earn the money to buy it. You never get something for nothing in our house. It made me appreciate everything that was dear to me.
Pat LaFontaine
