"Pray that he becomes a giving person who is content to live within his means and not always strive for more...A man deserves to earn what his work is worth and his wife should pray he does."
Mr B is very generous. He has made it known to me that we will tithe, whether we can afford it or not. That is something I really respect about him. He does have a tendency to want things we can't afford and to his credit, when I tell him it's not in the budget, he understands. Actually, he will go as far as to not fill his prescriptions when we are low on cash...that is something I hate. If its a necessity, it comes first...screw the cable. I am praying for him that he gets the pay he deserves. He works very hard and I think the lack of compensation he is dealing with makes him feel undervalued.
"God wants your husband to find treasure in Him, not in finances."
We are working on this one together. Although money to us is a tool, it sometimes can fuel a desire for things we want. We both know we are happier when we do what the Lord wants.
Out of this entire book, this chapter may be the only one I can gloss over... :). Not that we don't have financial issues, but it never brings tension between us. We tithe and the other bills we can't pay, for now anyway, just get shoved into a drawer until we can pay. God provides and we trust Him.
