Financial advisors view a life in black or red; they list assets and liabilities and try to balance the books. If the client is in the red, the accountant will suggest changes to avoid further loss. A flexible budget is set up, and in time, assets will grow. Individuals, couples, and firms all use the same basics to determine their financial stability or weakness.
The Apostle Paul used a much different approach as he determined his priorities. "But Christ has shown me that what I once thought was valuable is worthless. Nothing is as wonderful as knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have given up everything else and count it all as garbage. All I want is Christ and to know that I belong to him (Philippians 3:7-9a CEV)." He discovered his earlier assets of prestige and religious status, were in reality, liabilities. He gained eternal riches in his relationship with the King of Kings.
