We continued our series, “Accept No Mediocre Marriage,” with part 8. If you’re in debt and broke, this is what you should do.
That’s how so many people feel, “What should I do?” Before you do anything, you have to understand what got you to where you are. There are actions and attitudes that we have to bring to how we deal with money. Let me be the first to say today, that money is a profoundly spiritual issue. It’s not the knowledge, necessarily, of how money works. It’s the attitude.
So today one of the clear things we want you to understand is, when you got married, so did your money. Married money is very different from single money. It behaves differently. The responsibility is no longer “How do I spend my money?” but “What do we do with our money?” It’s not even just a two-party decision. If you have children, it can be a 3, 4, and 5-party decision. Today we gave practical ideas and advice on how married money behaves.
If you know someone who is frustrated with money issues, listening to today’s talk would be a great way to clear the air to get some simple, move ahead ideas.
As Dave Ramsey said on his National Live Radio broadcast, the number one cause of male suicide in America is money woes. This is something that need not be. We can turn this around, but we’ve got to start. And this is as good a place as any.
