Financially Obese

This season brings out the best and the worst in us, doesn't it?

We eat too much.
We spend too much.
We commit too much.

And then, just like that, it's all over, and what do we have to show for it?

A lot of times we come out more stressed as we wade through the aftermath of debt and strained relationships.

Just like a person who struggles with obesity.  It is a lifestyle (most of the time) of bad habits and a lack of self control.  The need for food has a hold on every area.

A person who spends more than their budget allows is financially obese.  Spending has become a lifestyle of bad habits and a lack of self control.  The need for "stuff" has a hold on every area.

This causes dissension, dissatisfaction and conflict in relationships, especially on marriages.

Don't wait until the new year to commit to beginning a diet for debt.

"Yet true religion with contentment is itself great wealth.
After all, we didn't bring anything with us when we
came into the world, and we certainly cannot carry
anything with us when we die."
I Timothy 6:6-7
