So what I’ve noticed is that people who rented a space (boarding house as a classic example) panic and scratch their head when the due comes in. The truth is, paying rent is not an emergency. It is something that we know way in advance amd something that we should prepare for when we receive our paycheck after we took an amount for tithing or giving of course.
That means before going out with friends and going clubbing and become a one day millionaire, budget your finances first to avoid future financial stress.
When we pay our rent on time or way in advance, we can save from a late payment fee and it’s not going to be too hard on the next coming month/s. If finances is too tight then probably give up loads or minutes for internet or let go of starbucks and just drink coffee at home. I was doing that and is still doing it until now. If I’ll frequent for a coffee at Mc Donald, that’s because I have it on a budget and I will not be guilty drinking over it-it’s a delightful drink.
If you had been saving for an emergency fund, make sure to use it for a real emergency like transferring residence because you had been evicted by the landlord (hahaha) or medical problems that need an immediate attention. Hopefully, by the Jesus blood, we are all protected against the devil’s trap.
Let’s consider what an emergency is and save for something that we already know is coming to avoid anxiety out of our wrong or poor financial choices.
May we all live in financial peace♥
