Roll With The Punches

For they gave according to their means...and beyond their means - 2 Corinthians 8:3

We're hosting a one-day seminar on personal finances called You Need A Budget. It's free and you can sign up here because who wants to keep living paycheck to paycheckdrown in debt and never save any money? Whether you need to start a budget, want a system for managing your money that doesn't take up an entire weekend, or need to tape your piggy bank back together, YNAB can help.

The YNAB Method is built on four rules:

  1. Give every dollar a job
  2. Save for a rainy day
  3. Roll with the punches
  4. Live on last month's income

Roll with the punches. In boxing, a fighter moves his body in the same direction as his opponent’s punch, so as to lessen the blow. In budgeting, you do the same. Be flexible and address overspending before moving on to the next month. This helps you stay in the fight.

Why does this work? Because you can't foresee the future. And because it gives you permission to be flexible - but responsible - with your budget.

Our next session of YNAB takes place on Saturday, January 25th. It's free, the concepts are simple and I believe it's an investment that can change your life. Click here to register. And if you have any questions, email our Finance Director, Micah Shaw at finances@missionathens.com.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich - 2 Corinthians 8:9
