Faith & Finance: Plans of the Diligent

The Bible has plenty to say about making plans. Clearly God is a planner, and He desires his children to make plans, as well.

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 21:5

How does planning affect our finances?

Planning a budget keeps our spending on track. Planning a menu helps us eat at home more. Planning a shopping list with matching coupons saves money.

The simple plans we make today can have a major impact on our financial future. Setting up college or retirement funds. Obtaining life insurance. Making a plan to pay off debt.

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3

Start with one small plan at a time.

How does planning help you become a better steward?

    Good post! It is always important to plan, so we can make better use of what God has given us. Planning also helps us to see the difficulties that could lie ahead for us, and encourage us to depend more heavily on the Lord (something we can easily forget).
