What makes for a full life? Is it the home we live in? Is it the car we drive or the vacations we’ve been on? Few people would think that their life is defined by their home, car or vacations, yet many people live their lives in this way. It’s been said that the things we own eventually own us.
Proverbs 13:22 says that one of the generosities a good man can show is by leaving an inheritance, not just to his children, but to his children’s children. The idea is that this man, rather than spending all his resources on himself alone, chose to save his money so that it might bless people in ways he’ll never see. It is quite a selfless act of generosity to conserve one’s own use of resources and give them to future generations, and it is a practice that is to be commended.

Who doesn't remember where they were on that tragic, unforgettable day?
In the aftermath of 9/11, my team was called to consult about certain ministries’ financial devastation. Some ministries survived; many didn't. All organizations need to be prepared for unforeseen financial problems. In a SWOT analysis, the "T" stands for THREATS. Threats come from the outside—things you can't see and can't control. But you’d better plan for them, or they will sneak up and take you out.
