Topic: LIFTING YOUR FAMILY’S FINANCIAL STATUS.
Text: Job 22:29.
29: When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
Finance plays major role in the well being of a family, just like failure, poverty is easy to come by, most times finance causes crisis in the family. Absence of money does affect the happiness in the home.
I am of the opinion that no matter the state of a family financially, there can be a lift. A poor family will become prosperous by careful realistic plan, your family status can change to the next level if some plans are put in place.
I want to discuss here what can change your family’s financial status. Worthy of note here are these:
1, FAMILY PLANNING: this is talking about the number of children in the family, it plays a good role in determining the expenses of the family.
2, THE RUNNING COST OF THE FAMILY: you need to calculate and regulate spending, you need to know your expenses per day, per week, your monthly bills, quarterly bills, yearly bills. Reduce them to the minimum. Expenses are usually weight on the family, if care is not taken it will become a burden, every member of the family will feel it.
3, OPEN OTHER SOURCES: create other sources of income for the family, it is possible, there are many things you can do with your present job. You can be a salary earner and do business, it is possible, I tried it before I resigned and it worked, in fact, it gave me confidence to resign.
4, DEVELOP STRATEGY FOR FINANCIAL GROWTH: start planning for the next 5,10, 15 years, make plans about the education of your children, have investments that can take care of your children’s education till they are through, invest in property that can generate rent, the rent can take care of their schooling till higher institution.
If you’ve got $5,000 to buy a car, that car will wear and tear, if you invest it, it will bring relief to the family in future, of course, car is good, but if you’ve got one and it is not giving problem, do investment that will effect a lift in your financial status before you buy another one.
5, AVOID COMPETITION: sometimes with friends or family members, if your brother or sister has gotten some luxurious assets, don’t try to meet up with them, but rather invest. If your neighbors appear to be doing well than your family, just stay calm and make plans for a lift.
There will be change of story if you can plan, your family members will be happy, your children will be able to face their future without fear, their dreams will come true easily if you can plan. They don’t have to go through the pains you went through, take up this challenge and help your family to take a lift financially. God bless you.
* Lord, I need wisdom for change of level.
