Money In Reserves

by PamFord Davis  
5/14/2009 / Pets

Did your father give you the wise advice to "save money for a rainy day?" Those disciplines are difficult to establish; but they reap large rewards to the faithful.

I remember my very first savings account. My elementary school offered a savings account plan through a local bank, to encourage children to develop the good habit of saving. I clearly visualize my small blue savings account book, where my small deposits were recorded. Coming from a family of five children I did not make substantial deposits; but even small amounts built up interest over the years.

When I became a teenager I came to a decision on how I wanted to spend the money my savings account accumulated. Dad drove me to the bank and I withdrew my cash; and then he drove me to the closest A.S.P.C.A. in Syracuse, N.Y. I picked out a small Irish terrier; and I named her "Terri." She was a beautiful, playful dog; and our entire family quickly became very attached to her.

Terri was young and small and soon we discovered puppies were on the way, with our neighbors' dog, "Charlie," the proud father! Both families were anxiously awaiting the arrival of the litter; but our excitement did not last long. Terri survived the delivery; but shortly after she became ill; and we lost her. I saved for a rainy day; but they did not bring showers of blessings.

Maybe our investments do not always lead to happy endings; but it is wise to keep money in reserves. Also, remember our heavenly Father can always be approached to provide our rainy day needs, "For every beast of the forest is Mine, the cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10)." He owns it all!

My husbands' parents once raised cattle and when needs arose, a cow would be sold to raise cash. Mother once purchased a beautiful sofa from one of those sales. God always has manifold blessings held in reserves. Make your withdrawal today!
