As a parent, you take it upon yourself to teach your child about the various aspects of life, helping to guide them on a path that will prepare them in making important life decisions. Children are especially impressionable at a young age, and by exposing your toddler to Bible truth as early as possible, the stories and Bible values become an invaluable part of their growth, allowing them to start to notice evidence of the Bible’s teachings in everyday life. Reading in general has many positive effects, and reading the Bible to your children is not only a powerful tool in spiritual development, but is also a pivotal part of strengthening the bond between you, your child and your faith.

How Can You Manage Your Assets? — Four Biblical Guidelines for Managing your Money

Imagine that you have a bag with a hole in it, and you have the task of keeping the bag inflated. How would you do it? Well, as long as the volume of air you blow into the bag is at least as much as the amount escaping through the hole, you can keep the bag inflated.

That, basically, is what is meant by living within one’s means. Your income can be likened to the air you blow into the bag. Your expenses are like the air escaping through the hole. The challenge is not to allow your expenses to get bigger than what your income can actually support.

Even though the basic idea sounds simple, putting it into practice and benefiting from it is quite another matter. People could spare themselves many financial woes if only they would endeavor to follow this basic concept. How can it be done? Where can we find guidelines that really work? The Bible is a source of much helpful information in this regard. (source: nwt p. 25 ¶1-4)
