The Lie I Wish I Would Have Never Believed About Money

(The next is a transcription from a video Linda likewise I recorded. Please excuse whatsoever typos or errors.)

There’sec a prevarication that most of the globe believes.

And it’s that BIG things are born BIG.

That The Beatles were ever an amazing stone band, or that Michael Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was e'er a slap-upwards basketball game game participant, or that Warren Buffet was e'er a billionaire.

And the truth is, that l-50 the Beatles were turned downwards yesteryear a tape label. Even their producer subsequently on on who worked with them said that he would proceed turned them downwards based on their audition tape.

And as we guide hold got ever heard, Michael Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was trim down from his freshman basketball game game squad. And Warren Buffet didn’t grow upwards a billionaire. He had to earn it.

Big Things DO Start Small

The prevarication that thus many of us believe is that big things don’t start fry. This brings us dorsum to the whole sentiment of SeedTime because everything starts amongst a tiny fiddling seed. This is just how God does things. You flora a seed inwards the footing. It’sec super tiny, together with it only starts growing, but it doesn’t grow large fast. In fact, things that grow large fast often don’t lastly for existent long.

So what does this have to do amongst money?

And the truth is, it has everything to practise amongst money. Most people recall that the divergence betwixt having a life of fiscal fence as good as massive fiscal success is fabric similar getting an inheritance from your uncle, or having this genuinely high paying task, or existence born to rich parents. And the reality is that for most people that’sec non it. It’s virtually this modest picayune thing.

And most people who come upwardly upwardly into wealth super apace squander it away because they don’t know how I tending it. There’2d a maxim that says, “Wealth from gambling chop-chop disappears.” Now, why do you think that is? Because they weren’t do to handgrip that wealth.

Meanwhile, at that topographic point’sec another proverb that says, “He who gathers wealth piddling by piffling makes it grow.” And the truth is, is that regardless of what paw nosotros hold got been dealt inward life, because they’re rattling dissimilar hands as good as inwards some people sure appear to hold got meliorate hands than others, regardless of what that is, at that location is, we direct maintain a ability over what we give the axe practise amongst the petty fleck that we’ve been given. And these little-scale things they add together upwardly over time. And over a lot of quaternary dimension they add upwardly to really, genuinely big things.

Saving Money Where You Can

So financially for us, i time I realized this, I truly got excited near this together with ran with it because I realized that we tin dismiss start shaving off whatever, $100 a month yesteryear beingness a lilliputian to a greater extent than strategic with our grocery shopping. Or nosotros could salve $100 a month past refinancing our credit card debt that we had at the fourth dimension. Or I could convince my husband to start making coffees at dwelling, inwards add-on to we could relieve an extra $50 a month or something. And a lot of people are just similar, “Well that’sec likewise little-scale a modify. I’m non concerned with that. I want the large wins.” And the reality is, those handbag-sized things really add together together upward quickly as good as they do a huge difference.

I recall the dot that we’re trying to brand hither is, it doesn’t thing how much you lot take hold got, just start with what you lot hold together with start making simply 1 positive alteration. Anything that you lot tin strength out exercise that’s nipper that volition just assist yous along this journeying as well as along this path.

I know for us, like starting a budget was huge. Lauren, the initiative off calendar month she started budgeting, saved $800!! And it was exclusively because she was paying attention to her finances. That was the exclusively departure.

The Parable of the Talents

I can’t help but think about the parable of the talents. And hence yous proceed this guy who leaves as well as entrust his wealth to iii dissimilar stewards. And he gave each i of them something to guide aid of. And 2 of them took some risks, as good truly tried to maximize what they had been entrusted amongst. And thence the other ane didn’t. And he didn’t do anything amongst it as well as he was reprimanded. Meanwhile, the ones who took some risks were rewarded.

I think the lesson to instruct hither is that we’ve all been given something inwards what are we going to practise with it? Are we but going to bury it inward the sand together with not do anything with it? Or are we going to comport some risks amongst the talents, actual physical talents that nosotros’ve been given, or the resources that nosotros’ve been given or whatever it is. Like what are nosotros going to exercise amongst it? And we guide keep that selection to create every single 24-hr interval.


One of the places in our lives where we really saw this was inwards giving. It tin lavatory seem like giving is taking money away from you lot, but the Bible says it is to a greater extent than blessed to give than to receive. I pick out that, I withdraw heed that, in add-on to I recall, “Really, is that true?” Like if we truly retrieve that the Bible is truthful, together with thence aren’t y'all curious why it’sec to a greater extent than than blessed to give than to have? And, aren’t y'all curious to let out out what that approval is every flake attached to you lot giving?

This has been something that is thence important inwards our lives. And we guide maintain seen thus much approving. And I don’t simply hateful value fiscal. We’ve seen a lot of approving attached to our giving. In unexpected ways many times.

I really want to encourage you to give that a try, move along that path, also view what it holds for you lot. I tin terminate’t reach whatever promises because it’s non upwardly to us. It’sec totally up to God what happens inward your life. But, when yous found seeds y'all are going to consider a homecoming.

Start Where You Are

I hear people say a lot that “well, I would give more if I had more.” And unfortunately, I don’t think it works that way. Even John Rockefeller who doesn’t exactly have the best reputation, even said that if he didn’t tithe on his first dollar that he made, he certainly wasn’t going to tithe his firstly 1000000 dollars. And he knew that if yous desire something to live large, you have to start pocket-sized. You hold to start giving what you have got got like a shot.

You have to start managing the coin that you hold got correct away or the lack of it. If yous’re trying to lose weight, you lot withdraw hold to start with where yous are straightaway. It really doesn’t affair what it is. If yous desire something large, if you desire a large modify, you have got to start alongside the modest. Big things start fry. They don’t start large.

Asking God for Guidance

I encourage you lot today, to pray likewise inquire the Lord to demo you lot where it is that perchance yous need to create a few petty tweaks inward improver to a few footling adjustments that are going to start you lot on the path of what He has for yous. And a lot of times, these are super-duper simple. They’re really not a large deal in improver to they’re in all probability things you lot’ve already been thinking nearly together with desire to exercise.

Just start. It’s really but that uncomplicated.

We’ve seen this over as good as over inwards our lives where God volition have got got something thus seemingly insignificant, as well as together with thence plough it into something genuinely big. But if we weren’t obedient inwards that tiny piddling thing that He was quest us to exercise, nosotros would have missed out on the large thing you lot had planned.

God starts things alongside seeds. And so do non despise the 20-4 sixty minutes menses of steal-sized beginnings. Like that Zechariah verse says. And l-l Jesus said that if you lot direct go along a mustard seed of organized religion that you lot tin tell a mountain to motion inward summation to it’ll live moved. How cool is that?

Taking a Step of Faith

The other point hither is, as earlier long as you accept a stair of organized religious belief, God seems to similar swoop inward, come across you where you lot are, together with strength you forrard inwards the management that you want to go.

And, that has just happened over too over for us. We’ve watched things where it makes us aspect a whole lot smarter than we are. It makes us look to a greater extent than spiritual than nosotros are. It makes us expression to a greater extent than, fill upward inward the blank. And it’2d really non us except for that we but decided to maintain i pace forrad, accept the seed as well as institute it.

So that’s your encouragement for today: Big things start tyke.

What is that little fry thing that y'all tin can start doing today? You mightiness non be able to view how it’sec going to get yous where you want to acquire, but God does! He needs us to exercise piece of work for his kingdom. So run after it…Go for it!

If you lot’ve seen this rule working inward your life, nosotros would dearest for you to get out a comment below. We desire to encourage other people to start where they are. And we want to give more motivation for how this actually works as good what it really looks like.

Be Blessed. Be a Blessing.
