The bank was unusually busy today. As I looked around, I could see the stress and almost desperation, etched on the customers faces. It is in our DNA to want to give, but I think we put way to much financial pressure on ourselves this time of year. We were meant to give out of an abundance. Yet we take out loans and put ourselves in bad shape financially so we can “show” others we love them by buying them tons of gifts. I am all for giving, it is one of my greatest joys in life to make a difference in someone else’s life. However, if we made better decisions with our money we might have more to give later. Think about it.
I know this is a tough topic especially this time of year, so we can talk about it more later. Let me just share some of my favorite quotes from those much smarter than myself. If you have any you would like to add, please add them in the comments section. Merry Christmas everyone!
