Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.

In today’s society, it’s so easy to get caught up in having the designer clothes, driving luxury vehicles, and living in the best area. There’s nothing wrong with having the best but, if the best is going to cause us financial frustration in the future, is it really worth it?

God desires that we be financially wise with our resources (Prov. 21:20). If we always feel the need to buy the latest things and not store up for our future or for our family’s future, we’re not exercising wisdom.

Be mindful of what and how you spend. Before every purchase, ask God if or when to buy that item. When we allow God to be our ultimate financial advisor, He guarantees that we’ll have all we need, including our desires and more than enough to financially bless our grandchildren (Phil. 4:19; Psalm 37:4; Prov. 13:22).
