Financial Fitness Tip #8: Moderation

Christmas is a few weeks away and slated as a major holiday for retailers. A time in which they strategize to make large profits from consumers.

This is also a time Believers/consumers need to be wise in remembering what the true meaning of Christmas is about – it’s not about materialistic fluff. It’s about the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

When God fed the Children of Israel manna in the wilderness, He instructed them to take only what was needed for their family. God wanted them to learn to avoid living an excessive life and to be content with what He provided for them. This is called living with moderation and contentment.  Those that gathered too much, the excessive manna turned into worms and smelled.  Using credit cards for Christmas is an unplanned venture that is hazardous on one’s finances. Plus it will take months or years to pay off those card; now that’s excessive living, which has no return on investment! Let the mindset of moderation be your guide, and make purchases for only items you can afford. Remember credit card usage can be hazardous to your financial future.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. This way I will test them to see whether or not they will follow My instructions (Exodus 16:4 HCSB).
