Money is paper with ink printed on it.

Money is made from paper composed of 25% linen and 75% cotton.   Red and blue synthetic fibers of various lengths are distributed evenly throughout.   Look closely and you will see them!

It is printed in big sheets @ the Bureau of Printing and Engraving.

So here is my question:   Why do we allow this paper with ink printed on it to have so much power and control in our lives?

Did you get to eat today?   Do you have clothes to wear today?   Do you have health today?   Are you safe?   Do you have somewhere to live?

If you do, you are living the GOOD LIFE!   Don’t allow paper with ink printed on it with pictures of guys with bad hair to control you.   I do admit, however, that I think that Andrew Jackson’s hair on the new $20 bill is cool (but his left eyebrow is crazy!   Look at it!!!)

So, since money is just paper with ink printed on it, resolve today to get over its mystique and start making it behave.   Remember that you can spend each dollar once and when it is gone, it is gone.   Save for a rainy day.   Don’t do debt.   Give tons away.   Love life.

    Joe,
    I heard this on the radio a few weeks back: the sin about going into debt with credit cards is that we’re rewarding ourselves with things we haven’t yet earned, and ignoring God plan about when He’s ready for us to have them.
