If you want to clear a room start using words like “discipline,” “sacrifice” in the same sentence that you use the word “money.” Defenses go up faster than a toupee in a hurricane.
Day three of the “Overrated” reading plan through YouVersion would certainly have that affect. I’m in chapter 3 headed into chapter 4 now, Cho offers this question today:
When has money become godlike in your personal life? What are some ways you can break the hold that money has over you starting today?
As I read this book I’m challenged at how much I sacrificially give not just of my treasure, but of my time and my talents. The key word there is “sacrificially.” I give. But is what I’m giving truly costing me anything? Its a tough question.
So if tough questions like this make you as uncomfortable as they do me . . let me warn you to run away from “Overrated.” Its getting really uncomfortable now . . . so yeah . . . you might want to go ahead and run away, run the other way.
Of course maybe you need to ask yourself these kinds of tough questions. I know I do.
