Mending the Holes in Your Pocket

Mending the Holes in Your Pocket:

Knowing Where Your Money is Going



“Look at what’s happening to you! You have planted much but harvest little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but cannot keep warm. Your wages disappear as though you were putting them in pockets filled with holes!”


The prophet Haggai, speaking to the people of Jerusalem (Haggai 1:5-6)

-520 B.C. 


If you are like many people, you’ll find that from time to time cash flow seems to come to a screeching halt just before payday. Actually in several cases, it seems to dwindle just after the paycheck arrives. That which was a mighty river on payday, overnight seems to become a dried-up little creek. Are you anything like that? Do you regularly find yourself in a cash crunch just before payday? Do you find yourself juggling money between savings and checking because you can’t maintain an adequate checking account balance? Perhaps you let one bill payment each month slide into next month. Or, even if your bills seem to be under control, you find it impossible to save any money. Does it sometimes feel like you have “holes in your pocket” that always allow the money to slip through? If so, welcome to life!
