Good day parishioners, i will be talking today about one of the very important topics that affects all of us humans. That is, storing your riches!
I made a little design for this post, as you can see above, i used the very great mice sniff and scurry to explain the need to store whatever riches we make in life. In preparation for the changes that may come our way and bring on the rainy days.
Now!, i'd love to shed more light on my topic for today.
Making money is hard work; and this may be testified to by everyone who has made it legitimately and ethically. The wealth that Jacob paraded came as a result of discipline and many sacrifices over the course of two decades.
Hear his report;

Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the front by night, and my sleep departed mine eyes.
**(GENESIS 31:40)**

Maintaining money is harder work still. It is one thing to make money well, but quite another to know how to maintain it. You may be surprised that enormous amount of time and energy goes into distributing wealth among competing demands.
Minimizing the risk of money is the hardest work. The risks attached to wealth are all glaring in Paul's admonition to the rich.

charge them that are the rich in the world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
**(1 TIMOTHY 6:17)**.

Money can easily make you go about with a haughty look and provide a false sense of security. Any one of these will put you on collision course with God. When you pray for grace to make it your focus should cover all these three.
Now, i want to take us to the bible to show
what the bible says about saving.

The Bible teaches that saving money is a really wise practice for many different reasons. God is our only source and provider for everything we need in life.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus”
**(Philippians 4:19)**

One of the major ways that God provides for us is through provision of money, and it is our major job to steward that money very well. (Matthew 25:14–27).

We are all accountable to God for how we use everything that He gives us in this life, including our money.
Saving money demonstrates good stewardship of the resources God has given to us.
Saving money allows us to be prepared for the impending future, and being prepared for the future is really good. Proverbs 6:6–8 shows us that this principle is lived out even in nature:

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

Planning ahead and saving money makes it much easier to accomplish the goals and allows us to be more effective in our ministry ,(see 1 Corinthians 16:2).*
When we don’t plan ahead and save money, we are more prone to go into heavy debt, which the Bible tells us is unwise. (Proverbs 22:7)

We mice are all for saving money Jude... this does not necessarily involve banks though. Our gold and silver cheeses rise in value, so do our dairy farms, our cheese distribution networks and our cryptocheeses... but we don't really like to entrust banks with paper promises of cheese - except maybe in the short term.

Just saying!

I now understand perfectly!👌
All your words have been noted!.
Thanks alot for stopping by @sniffnscurry

Saving money is a very good practice, it is known that God is pleased when we use whatever he has given to us very wisely. It would show appreciation on our parts when we avoid wasting whatever talents have been given unto us. Thanks for sharing.

·

Truely said. Thanks alot

The cheese might really be money for some. We have to be wise as regards money. Greed easily comes up in the heart of a man. This accounts for one of the problems in most developing nations. Thanks for your contribution.

One of the good things in this life that God gives us is money and it is for reason and He expect us to make good use of it. He expect us to make not to keep it but to use it for the sake of His kingdom work. Thanks for sharing

·

Yes . we all have to use our blessings for God's works.

Talents are given by God without collecting it back, likewise money too, but is we do not practice the act of saving what GOD has given us, they will loose it value.

·

Exactly.
They may eventually loose value
So we have to be wise.

Dealing with the issue of money is not an easy thing but it is wise to plan for every penny we are making after considering the onethat is meant for God and His work. We just have to save for the raining days.

I love this

Planning ahead and saving money makes it much easier to accomplish the goals and allows us to be more effective in our ministry

Very well said. We should always plan every single penny we get.

Blessing don't just come to meet you when you don't work for it..
With what God has given you preserve it and use it wiselly
Committing our selves onto the lord is very important because for everybody who has given his or her life to him would always be controlled by his will and powers .
God created us and put a unique thing in our life.
He has plan for us wheather in a good or bad situation .
He made a real time design for us all .
His blessings are only for those who truely believe in him and do his will and that are the people who he will always have reserve for .
For the great thing he made is always perfect and fits we all that trust in him .
Gods plan is the best never make your own decision without consulting the living God.

Wow.
What a great comment review.
Nice.

"Maintaining money is harder work still. It is one thing to make money well, but quite another to know how to maintain it"
Maintaining is really hard work.

·

Exactly. Maintaining money is much work.

We should always learn to save up, for there are times when we will surely need the money we save up.
You know there are times of famine, so always learn to save up, even as you spend.
May God help us all in making the right decision of how to live our lives.

·

Yes times in the future when we will need money will definitely arise.

Its only logical to #save so as to be prepared for the unexpected #Challenges to come..

Nice write up @juderoyal

To be rich, and stay rich, is more of an attitude, a state of mind that doesn't necessarily relate to your assets, but your quality of life. However, if you're looking to turn a big paycheck or other assets (stocks, real estate, an inheritance, etc.) into lasting wealth, or "stay rich," you'll need to learn to manage your money, making careful choices to ensure your assets won't disappear when the going gets tough.

You and I are advised to put our money into simple portfolios and to invest in shares for the long-term for our retirement.

But once the preservation of wealth becomes more important than growing it, other strategies come into play.

When we are faithful to Christ, we work for our dreams and storage in the banks of heaven, the moth or thief take away our savings.

Money can easily make you go about with a haughty look and provide a false sense of security. Any one of these will put you on collision course with God.

Saving money allows us to be prepared for the impending future, and being prepared for the future is really good.
