Cnr of Wearden Rd & Forestway Belrose 10am & 5pm Sundays
As a follow-up to Sunday’s Message on Haggai I wanted to give some helpful tips so you you can develop some margins into your life and into your finances. Before we get there a couple of quick passages from the Old Testament on the subject of margins in our life.
When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the alien. I am the LORD your God. – Lev 23:22
“When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. – Deut 24:19
So what are some strategies to build margins into your life? The first thing you should be aware of is moving to this place takes time, it took time to find your way into financial stress and it is a matter of discipline and work to pull out of it again.
As you start to build margins into your life, it’ll radically increase your ability to be generous with what God has given you. Sow and water right to the border of the field, harvest and leave a margin!
