I am on a crusade to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible! I am on this crusade because my life has been changed because someone else took the time to help me. My world was rocked because I took note of wise counsel and listened. While I listened, I actually heard what was being said! Then, I did the outrageous! I actually applied what I had learned!
Guess what? It worked!!! My savings and checking accounts had always hovered around $4.13. I was never able to hold on to any money that we earned. It all just went right back out to pay someone else for something that I just could not resist (and now was usually relegated to storage in the garage or attic).
My life has been changed! I want the entire world to know about it! This is life-changing stuff! Jesus Christ rocked my world through dying on the cross for me. Guess what? When I was "saved" from my financial idiocracy (word?), it felt a whole lot like when I was saved by Jesus Christ! I am FREE! I am free to pursue the very thing that I have been put on this earth to do! I am free of the worries related to paycheck-to-paycheck living. I am free to help others!
How awesome is that? Won't you join me in this crusade? Who do you know in your neighborhood or family that needs "salvation" from a financial mess? Who do you know that you could take the time to teach about "saving for a rainy day" and "spending less than you make" and "INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO"?
What have you got to lose by offering? If they actually do this, they will NEVER forget you, they will never be the same, and their worlds will be rocked. Then, when their worlds have been rocked by the kindness you have shown them – they will go tell others about it! They may even consider a relationship with Jesus Christ as a result of the experience!
I am on a crusade. Won't you join me?
