I mentioned before that I would like to start a business but I’m still on the developing phases. I’m not sure what I really want to do so I’m still searching for the best option for me and my family. I would like to be able to retire at an early age to be able to spend more time with my children and maybe even home-schooled them. We are still working on this but I have so many ideas and think about so many different things that sometimes they don’t even make sense.
But regardless of what I think of or what I plan, there is one thing that we need to make things happen: money. Money drives our daily lives, we need it to eat, to have a roof over our head, for doctor visits, to pay taxes, for a lot of things. This world is very materialist sometimes (or most of the time) and a lot of people get lost in it. I sometimes get lost in it when it’s the end of the month and we have to stretch those two paychecks for 30 days. I’ve heard people blame money for everything that is bad. I’ve heard them say money is bad and most of the time, it’s due to 1 Timothy 6:10, “The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have turned away from what we believe because they want to get more and more money. But they have caused themselves a lot of pain and sorrow.”
This verse says “The love of money…” not money itself. If you give money to a good person, this person will do good things with the money. But if you give money to a bad person, this person will do bad things with the money. For me this means that I have to work on me, to be the best person I can be, so that once I do have money I can do good things with it. And this is one of the goals of this 30 day challenge, to become a better person.
