Financial Fast Day 1
A no-spend day! Put $6 in my savings envelopes and received a reimbursement check that was over double the amount I expected it to be. What a blessing!
The main points in chapter 1 are that the fast helps as you reexamine spending habits as you eliminate spending on everything that isn't essential. Today's suggested scripture is Proverbs 3:9-10:
Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine. NIV
Today's journal assignment is to make a list of obstacles that may keep us from sticking to the fast:
1. It's summertime and Colton wants to go fun places and do fun things. We'll find free things to do.
2. I want to put in laminate floors (I've wanted them for 13 years) the week Colton's at the beach with his dad. He doesn't like change and mess. I will probably do it anyway. Planning to break the fast already? For shame.
