Dear curiousMind subscriber,
Why do you work for money?
Have you ever asked yourself this question? What is your answer?
My answer is this... It is better to give than to receive! Isn't it more satisfying to give help than to be the one needing of help? This is the reason why I want to earn more and more and more - because I want to be able to help as many people / cause or charity as possible in my lifetime.
Some years ago, I would always be content with what I have because that was how our parents brought us up. But then growing up I realized that this kind of thinking has stopped me from achieving my full potential. God has given us the ability to make 100%, so why would I settle for 50 when I can make more?
I also realized that every time I give, the happiness I receive is so BIG it can't simply be measured. To quote Bo 'Money is merely a symbol of value' the kind of person you become by the amount of wealth you have is the BIGGER BLESSING. What is your value?
Let me end by sharing with you Bo Sanchez's Soul Food message about Love and Money. I hope you learn as much as I did....
Earn As Much As You Can, Love As Much As You Can
Yes, make 100%!
Don’t settle for 50% or 60% or 80% or even 90%--if God has given you the ability to make 100%.
Why try to earn more?
There are two very good reasons why you should earn more.
1. You Want To Give More
Once upon a time, I used to earn P800 a month.
I was a missionary and I was very happy. I loved God. Yes, there were days when I got hungry, but that hunger was very good for me. God taught me many things through my hunger.
Today, I’m still a missionary. But I’m also an entrepreneur. I run 12 small businesses. Yes, I earn more now. And guess what: I’m still very happy. I still love God very much.
The only difference is that I’m able to give more. And this gives me so much joy! I can now personally finance my ministry projects—like giving scholarships to poor kids or supporting missionaries or building the Feast.
But there’s a second reason for earning more, and I’m excited to share this with you.
