How do you gage success? Let me present something to you, it's in the form of a game. I call it:
What Game Is Not A Game?????
The game starts with a questions (see if you can answer correctly?)
1. What is your greatest financial resource?
If you are like most people you probably thought your greatest financial resource, was your home, car, bank account, business establishment. If you came up with any of these they are assets, your home was probably the largest purchase you ever made, your car is your ability to get around easily, it allows you to go great distances in a short amount of time, it helps when you must pick up your children, get to work (whether secular or ministry) You may have answered-- your bank account, while some have seen a decrease in their liquidity it is still a time trusted and true asset, and if you are a business owner, surely your business is your greatest financial resource right?
Your Greatest Financial Resource is. . . . . . . . YOU!

Game 2: Off the top of your head quickly think of 3 people:
Usually we think of Mom and/or Dad, Brother or Sister, Best Friend or Significant Other, some think of Neighbor, Employer or Pastor
Now ask your self, if something happened to me, if I got sick or injured who would take care of my family?
My parents are retired, or I only have one elderly parent, my brother or sister have their own responsibilities and sometimes I have to help them out, My best friend or significant other, are a lot like myself, they have responsibilities, aging parents, children, bills, mortgage, car payments. My neighbors are great but I can’t go to them with my financial concerns, my Boss doesn’t lend money I have to work for it, and even if I could get help from the church, they can only help me for a short time, maybe they could help with paying a utility bill, but they won’t take on my entire monthly expense.
No matter if you are self-employed, working, wealthy, or living pay-check to paycheck, you all have one thing in common. If something did happen, a sickness or injury your entire life system could be or would be thrown out of balance if you missed any time out of work.
How many people depend on you and who do you have to depend on are vital questions in today’s economy. Sometimes we cut back on what we think are not vital, but our ability earn an income should not be one of the cut back items.
Now do you understand why I started out saying, This Game --THE GAME OF LIFE--Is Not A Game.
It is not a game when you can’t take care of your self, it is not a game when you can’t pay your bills (and forget about on time-- how about AT ALL)! It’s not a game when you have to borrow from people who are already stretched. It’s not a game when you know you would have to go to family, friends, your Boss, the church and borrow to make ends meet if you were sick or injured. It’s not a game to be forced to recuperate and worry what will happen if you can’t get back to work IMMEDIATELY!!
