“A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.
The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
I remember the first time I tried to hike the incline here in Colorado. I thought it was just a bunch of stairs that you can walk up at your own pace. While this is true, the stairs are not standard. They are brutal! I was a bit out of shape and forgot my water in the car. What a mistake! Even though I was never in scouts, I learned their motto: Be Prepared. I wasn’t prepared for the incline. Being prepared means always being in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty, discipline yourself in every order, think through different disaster scenarios, know the right thing to do, and then do it when the time comes. As adults, we are to look at our situations and prepare for anything and everything. Unfortunately, so many of us are unprepared for financial dangers. We live paycheck to paycheck, and if we had a $1000 emergency, most of us would have to pull out the credit card. This should not be! The Bible encourages us to be prudent and look ahead to danger. If we see trouble coming, we are to prepare. This means that we save money for emergencies, live with margin in our budget, and plan where our money goes to work. If this is something you struggle with, I’d love to show you how to develop a stress-free plan. It is time to become that prudent and prepared adult you know you should be.
