We will learn to say, “No,” for a little while, so that we can say, “Yes,” for the rest of our lives. Pray before you pay: learn to wait. Build the “Oh no” fund. Eliminate overhead. Build the reserve fund. – Dwayne Terry

From the “Life.Money.Hope” series. Sermon 2 of 4

Proverbs 13:7One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.

Proverbs 12:9Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.

Proverbs 22:7 “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”

Proverbs 25:28 Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.

  • We will learn to say, “No,” for a little while, so that we can say, “Yes,” for the rest of our lives.
  • Pray before you pay: learn to wait.
    • Under $100, wait 3 days.
    • Between $100 & $1,000, wait 1 week.
    • Over a $1,000 wait 1 month.

Proverbs 21:5The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.

Building Your Plan

  • Build the “Oh no” fund.
  • Eliminate overhead.
  • Build the reserve fund.

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
