Rule # 8 Peace Becomes You

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
“For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.” I Timothy 6:7-8

Fear is not an option.

We live with the knowledge of God’s hand on our life, if we do the work we have nothing to fear. We have been given all the resources we need to succeed. It is simply a matter of applying them in our lives.

Learning enough to take control of our financial lives gives us the confidence that we are on the right track. Knowing that the basis of our chosen path comes from God gives us the strength to not get derailed.

While we are encouraged to seek advice from others we are not told to simply hand over all responsibility to someone else. When it comes to investing people want to hand off all responsibility which can lead to disaster. This allows people to blame someone else if things go wrong. We have many examples of things going very wrong when someone blindly hands over total responsibility to someone else.

It's your life, it's your family, and it's your responsibility. If you don't know, learn.

Then relax.
