Buy the truth and do not sell it— wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
~ Proverbs 23:23
Smart financial advisors adamantly instruct us to: "Pay yourself, first!"
Their advice is similar to the airline attendent who instructs us, "that in case of a loss of oxygen in the cabin, put on your oxygen mask first - then assist the ones next to you."
We invest in ourselves so we can take care of others.
The writer of proverbs advises us to invest in truth, to spend our money on things which make us smarter, wiser, more equipped to be the man God built us to be.
Of course, you gotta pay the bills! But don't skip the bill you owe yourself - which is investing in your own spiritual growth.
