Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow. Proverbs 13:11
The principle in this proverb is unmistakably clear: if you are dishonest in your business dealings, what you “earn” will just dwindle away.
Putting aside money gradually allows you to build up what you have. The principle is also clear: you don’t need to save thousands and thousands at one time. In fact, it’s probably better that you don’t do it that way. Instead, put a little away at a time. You won’t notice it being gone from your pile, but you are in the habit of doing it.
Do either of these two principles ring true with you today?
