I’m so happy to introduce this week’s guest blogger: endearingly referred to as “my better whole” and “my Cuban” he’s also @cubanpastor on Twitter & Instagram he’s got the most Latin name though he hardly speaks the language, ladies and gents, give it up for RAUL ENRIQUE PALACIOS II. Whhhhhoooooooohooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! And I am so pumped to say that he is speaking on the thing we all need help with, that he’s always been good at: FINANCES! Without further ado…

What can we learn from the ant? Take a look at Proverbs 6:6-8. I see a few things that can help us on our financial journey. First, work hard! Ants don’t need anyone to tell them to get started. They just work. Also, they don’t gobble up everything they gather, they save for the future. Practically speaking I have found the single most important thing you can do in your financial life is to live below your means.  A formula I have always maintained is the 10-10-80 rule. Bring at least 10% to my church (It’s all God’s anyway, right). Save at least 10% (just like the ant). And finally, have a ball with rest! If we follow this principal I can assure you that you will reduce the financial stress in your life. So let’s be as smart as the ant & prepare for the plans God has for us.
