I grew up at a time when we learned to make do, use up what we had before we got more, or even do without. When Jim and I lived in other countries with no guaranteed income, we also learned that you can live with less, use what you have and enjoy it, take care of what you do have so that it will last longer.
We try to still live this way. We take careful care of things we do have. We use up what we have before we get a lot more stuff. We enjoy what we have. God has been so very good to us!
God, I thank You that You have been faithful to teach us these lessons, and have been faithful to provide for us in all seasons of our life. We are so very grateful for Your provision for us in this season of our life. AMEN
It is good and pleasant to sing praises to our God. The Lord is pleased those who respect Him and trust His love. Psalm 147
Take Care Of What You Have
23 Be sure you know how your sheep are doing, and pay attention to the condition of your cattle. 24 Riches will not go on forever, nor do governments go on forever. 25 Bring in the hay, and let the new grass appear. Gather the grass from the hills. 26 Make clothes from the lambs’ wool, and sell some goats to buy a field. 27 There will be plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to make your servant girls healthy. (Proverbs 27:23-27 NCV)
