Are you kidding me?

“This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” Romans 13: 6-7 NIV

Every time ‘outgo’ goes up and ‘income’ stays the same, one wonders just how that is possible. GOD inspired the writer of the Book of Romans to give specific orders as to how we handled the action of authorities. It is probably true that folks have not been given a raise, nor has the cost-of-living-increase been included. “Tis a Puzzlement, yet I somehow make it through a year without being relegated to the ‘work farm’.  Prices may increase, but when it’s all said and done, things balance out without having to borrow.  That is, IF we are diligent in our spending. Good budgeting makes a difference.  I’ve shared my experience with The Dave Ramsey School of Finance. Dave makes sense and I assure you that if you follow his plan, it works.  It’s just common sense, but who ever said sense was so common? It probably is the exception rather than the rule. If you have the problem of meeting wants instead of needs, try Dave Ramsey’s way of living out of an envelope. It works and it allows us to honor what Romans says. That’s a good feeling, donchaknow.  That’s what I get from my Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
