Using money rightly... hopefully

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

Meditating about the right use of money this morning.

Over the past 20 years I have been given (yes given) a little by this country's standards to live on and make use of given that I have a real disability (mental illness).

I was devastated at the time I was "put on" disability by my family at the time. My ego and pride was wounded to the core.

In all honesty I wouldn't have survived thus far without that bit that I was given to work with. I know that my family is grateful that I have survived thus far as well.

Last year was a particularly bad year for me regarding this illness (bipolar disorder), but it did do something that I have been praying for for a very long time and that is it has got me to start creating again like I did long before I was being held in the grips of this disease.

Creating what?

Mostly writing. I wrote and self-published a small book and created this website/blog.

Has any of that "paid off" for me or my loved ones yet? The simple answer is no.

Do I believe that there is real value to it? Yes. To someone out there.

What motivates me to continue?

Mercy. Plain and simple.

To me that is the greatest "mystery" of the Christian Faith.

Of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself.

No matter how much money ever does or doesn't fall under my care and stewardship in this lifetime, I will always be indebted to Him for his saving graces.

How can I "repay" Him?

Simple: "Do unto others..." (The Golden Rule)

God bless, have a great day!

How I handle disappointments

Basically, I don't handle them myself for sure. Every time we make an effort to better ourselves unselfishly (i.e. for the benefit of others) then we shouldn't be ashamed if we fall short sometimes. G
