One reason to save is so that when something breaks or wears out, you can fix or replace it without borrowing.
However, some may have ―good reasons not to save.
1. Some may say, ―I cannot save a lot—therefore, it is meaningless to save anything. But, according to God’s Word, it is not meaningless to save small amounts.
Why? Your attitude leads to new habits which are far more important than the amount. Plus, saving a little for a long time is a great way to accumulate wealth.
2. Some might think God frowns on a Christian who saves anything. If this is what you believe, please reconsider Proverbs 21:20, ―…there are stores of choice food and oil in the house of the wise, but the foolish man devours all that he has.
God’s Word teaches you, even encourages you, to save. Therefore, it is something you need to do as part of your plan of action. He tells us there will be times of feast and times of famine. Saving allows us to find shelter during the ups and downs of our economy.
1 Corinthians 16:2 On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.
