1 Praise the LORD! Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 106:1 (NLT)

What are you thankful for? We all have something to be thankful for. Thank God just because He’s good! Thank God for your family. Thank God for your health. Thank God for a roof over your head. Thank God for everything!

Have some fun, eat a whole bunch of food, and God bless!

“Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn’t expect to be paid back.”

Unknown source

Ha! That’s funny. I say don’t borrow at all if you don’t have to.

3 Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tentmakers just as he was.

Acts 18:3 (NLT)

There’s nothing wrong with a pastor having two jobs. In fact, most pastors in America today are bi-vocational (have two jobs). Paul was a tentmaker besides being a minister. However, I believe that a pastor can be more effective when he or she can focus on serving God without having to worry about finances.

I believe the Bible is very clear about supporting ministers. But there’s also nothing wrong with a pastor having a second job. Sometimes, it’s just what it takes.

From the Life Application Bible:

Each Jewish boy learned a trade and tried to earn his living with it. Paul and Aquila had been trained in tentmaking, cutting and sewing the woven cloth of goats’ hair into tents. Tents were used to house soldiers, and so these tents may have been sold to the Roman army. As a tentmaker, Paul was able to go wherever God led him, carrying his livelihood with him. The word tentmaker in Greek was also used to describe a leatherworker.

Black Friday, the traditional kick-off to the Christmas shopping season, is fast approaching in a couple weeks. I go every year and camp out on Thanksgiving night after dinner. Some of the ads are already out at bfads.net. So far, I’m a little disappointed in the “deals”. But, some ads are not available yet so hopefully someone pulls something out.

Last year I camped out at Best Buy, but I’m not sure this year. I may just decide to stay home and do Black Friday online this year. It really depends on the deals. You would think that with the economy the way it is that retailers would pull out all the stops to get the shoppers out.

“It’s apparent that the Labor Department had some problems seasonally adjusting for the Veterans Day holiday.”

Ted Wieseman

Here’s quote for Veterans Day. Happy Veterans Day to you! Always remember the veterans who served for our country and pray for those serving every day. This country was founded on freedom and those who fought for our freedom and those who continue to fight! God bless!

“The rule is not to talk about money with people who have much more or much less than you.”

Katherine Whitehorn

In other words, don’t talk to anyone about money? I would never talk to co-workers about money, or at least, salary. There is just too much room for jealousy. If you make more than the other person, they’ll be jealous of you. If they make more, you’ll be jealous. Nobody wins.

But who can you talk money with? I think every couple needs to talk about money. The number one reason for divorce in America is about money and money fights. And I’m not talking about letting one spouse control the finances. It should be a joint effort with everyone involved. Money is so important, it should be talked about before marriage. In fact, I like what Suze Orman says about knowing each other’s FICO credit scores before getting married! And that’s because how people handle their money tells what kind of person he or she is.

Remember that where your treasure your heart is too (Matthew 6:21)!
