“Your success as a family, our success as a society depends not on what happens at the White House, but what happens inside your house,” said by Barbara Bush at the Wellesley College Commencement in 1990. Those words are as true as they have ever been. As we look forward to another presidential election where one side will be trying to convince all the other side is worse than they are. We will be voting for the lesser of two evils, let’s look at our own house and get it in order.
The Bible says “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” (1 Timothy 5:8, New American Standard Bible) Even the bible says start with your household and then work out. A lot of people seem to think that the President will take care of their house. I’m not sure how the President is going to help me.
As people we need to step up and take care of our families, then reach out to our neighbors, to our community, our city, county, state, country, and then, the world. Start by saving some money. Take a little from each paycheck and pay it into a savings account just like it was a bill. Then kill off your debt. Your debt is a cancer I wrote about last week. I’m trying to motivate you to take charge of your own life and not wait on anyone else to help you. Help yourself and then you can help others. If you want some more motivation, check out this video, it gets good at 1:30.
