3 S’s of Money

When it comes to money, I can think of three “S” words. The first one is “Spend”. The other one is “Save”. The last one is “Share”.
Spend
How many credit cards do you have? Like many people, I have a few.
Banks like people to have as many credit cards as possible and encourage them to use as much as they can. The reason is simple: banks make a lot of money out of credit cards! Banks don’t care too much if we can afford to pay for the credit card bills, because if we don’t or can’t pay for it, we will be charged with a hefty interest rate.
Concerning money management, spend our money wisely!
Save
I can still recall the first piggy bank that I had as a child! It’s a plastic bank building model. Money saving is a good habit, as we all need to save money for a rainy day.
Regarding money management, don’t save money like stingy Ebenezer Scrooge, but instead we should save money for a good cause!
Share
There are numerous generous philanthropists around the world. That’s nothing wrong for being rich. Wealthy people can share their riches with the less fortunate people so that the world can be a better place. As ordinary people, we should learn to share our riches with our loved ones and down-and-outs alike.
In terms of money management, there is a time to spend, to save and to share. The famous English preacher John Wesley said, “Get all you can; save all you can; give all you can.” Dallas Willard added more to it, he said, “Get all you can; save all you can; freely use all you can within a properly disciplined spiritual life; and control all you can for the good of humankind and God’s glory.”
