Cents and Sense
York Adams Area Council
Tonight we’ve focused on
dollars and sense—not cents as in pennies, and nickels, and dimes—but sense as
in common sense—sense, as in sensibility and sensitivity. Let’s think about
that for a moment.
We are all charged with
the job of being good stewards—caretakers of what we are given. But let’s not
let money become our goal. Money is a tool that helps us reach our goal and we
shouldn’t abuse it. As we move forward in life, let’s remember that it isn’t
money that counts, but how we use it. Whether we are followers of a Christian
religion or not, the phrase from the New Testament still applies to all of us:
“I was hungry and you gave me food to eat.”
We mustn’t forget that
there are some who cannot take care of themselves and that it is our job in
life to help take care of them. Do not hoard your money such that it becomes
the thing that drives you. Always be generous to others that are in need and
you will be paid back many times over.
