Life is expensive

I’m writing this while sitting in my local Discount Tires lobby waiting for my new tires on my Element.
This morning there was a coffee computer mishap by an adult in my house other than me who shall remain nameless.
Kathy and I have a vacation planned and we were talking about the expenses that will go along with that last night.
Bills are getting paid and we are making progress on our goals. But life is just expensive.
I have limited resources and we are making it work. I have to invest in the neccesities. So that means I don’t get to buy an iPad. I don’t get to by the CD that I want. And you know what, I’m ok with that. I would rather invest in the things that will keep my family safe and will build great family memories.

I also have missionaries talking to me about their financial needs. Missions work is expensive but worth it. I know that the money that we invest in our missionaries is money well given. There are just so many different things that are clamoring for the resources that I get to steward.
Invest it what will bring the greatest return.

Steward ship is a burden but it’s an indicator of trust. My wife and kids trust that I am doing what is best for them. God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve at Creekside, and He is trusting me to steward His resources well.

How are you stewarding what you’ve been trusted with?
