Albert Einstein is credited with defining insanity as doing the same thing and expecting different results. Therefore, it stands to reason that if we want something we’ve never had, we must do something we’ve never done.
When I was drowning in debt, I could not even imagine becoming debt free. Four years later, my wife and I had zero debt and we were executing a strategy to accumulate wealth. When we met with a realtor about buying a house, she was shocked. She had never had a debt-free client!
How did we get there? By changing our financial behavior. We made debt-free living a priority and at that time, nothing else was more important.
In Luke 16, Jesus tells the story of the shrewd manager who organized and executed a strategy for getting out of debt. I’m sure when the manager was in trouble, he felt like he had hit rock bottom. But he changed his financial behavior and got out of debt– and you can too!
This weekend read Luke 16, and pray for strength to change your financial behavior.
