How To Spend Your Money

When a wise farmer harvests his crops, he first takes out a portion and keeps it for the next planting season.

The bigger the harvest, the more the portion he keeps.

How do you spend your income?

You have just received an amount equal to half of your monthly salary or income, what do you do with the gift?

If you’re like most people, you are probably already planning what to buy with it. You already calculated how much stuff that amount can buy.

Stop right there! That kind of mindset is what’s keeping you where you are. You want to change your financial situation, you got to change how you think about money.

Your first duty on getting any amount of money is not to spend it. That is the mindset of poor people, which I believe you are not.

When a wise farmer harvests his crops, the first thing he does is to take out a portion and keep it for the next planting season.

The bigger the harvest, the more the portion he keeps.

A foolish farmer does the opposite – he harvests his crop and immediately prepares himself a large, ‘well-deserved’ banquet.

“After all”, he says, “I have worked so hard to get this harvest”.

Before he knows it, he’s almost out of seeds. And then he tries to scrape whatever he can for the next planting season.

For him, there’s only one thing you use money for – spend it.

The wise farmer saves first, then lives off the rest.

To take it further, the wise farmer, after keeping a portion, also sets aside a portion to give out to whoever needs it.

Does he do this because he believes that God, or whoever, will repay him? Who knows!

All that is known is that he sticks to this habit.

Any harvest he gets, he keeps a portion for next planting, and reserves a portion to be given out.

Ah, but we’re talking about YOU and money.

And so there’s only one question that needs asking – are you a wise or foolish farmer?
