Money and value

The market will tell you the price of everything but the value of nothing!

Money is not about bank balances, savings, debt or about buying things or investing.  It is a way in which we express our values, which in itself is a way in which we express what we consider to be the most important in life.

Money facilitates what is the most meaningful for us in the world. It is meant to help us design a life which expresses

who we are; our gifts and talents, creativity, compassion, integrity and our mission in life. We strive to use our money in such a way that we can express our unique personality in the world in which we live, and this has everything to do with our Life goals. What do I really want out of life?

Discovering our life purpose and goals which will help us to ma
ximise our expression of who were really are, is a long process but a very worthwhile exercise.

The process of financial planning is not just for the rich and wealthy!  Financial life planning is the key to sorting out the unconscious way we behave with money so our personal energies and financial resources can work in harmony to create the life we most want to live.

I have heard it said that money seeks to delude us by focusing on things and not what those things will bring to our life that which we desire for most.

You can buy a house but not a home; medicine but not health; sex but not love; books but not education; vacation but not rest; a bank account but not security; even religion, but not a saviour!

Jesus said, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

So, what are your life goals?  How are you using your money for life’s really wonderful things like investing in people trough generous giving and compassion; and investing in eternity by supporting Gods Kingdom with your time, talents and treasure?

That’s what I am working on!
