MEMORISE: For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Luke 14:28

BIBLE TEXT: Luke 14:28-32

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

MESSAGE

Budgeting is one of the tips for financial prudence that many young people have not learnt, and this makes them continually dependent on others for money. When my children were younger, I would ask them to make a list of their needs and wants. Needs were those recurring items that they use every month while wants were things that they would just love to have. We would fix the market prices, then I would add some money to the total on the list and give it to them. This helped them to learn budgeting and how to tell the difference between their needs and wants.

It is important to have a scale of preference for your needs (compulsory items) and wants; this can help you keep track of your spending and save some money. Learn to stick to your budget; avoid buying things that go above your budget. This way you will be able to stay on track with your financial goals.

KEY POINT:

You are not too young to exhibit wisdom in financial matters.

HYMN 21: NEARER, MY GOD TO THEE

1.⁠ ⁠Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

2.⁠ ⁠Though, like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee

 

3.⁠ ⁠There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou send’st to me
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee

4.⁠ ⁠Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony grief
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

5.⁠ ⁠Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving thy sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly
Still all my songs shall be,
Nearer my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!
