We have come a long way from the days of getting by with just the basics! For proof, look in our cupboards, closets, credit card bills, etc. And we often take on too many projects, making us tired and stressed. If we put God first in our lives, He will show us how He wants us to serve Him. He will give us energy, ideas, and tools we need for the task. If we open our hearts to His Word, he will guide us to be faithful and effective managers of our life and resources.
