For a moment, imagine that…
All your money is gone save for just enough to get by on. You can no longer just write a check whenever you choose, for whatever you choose. Your budget doesn’t even cover food or gas…just living expenses. So, you buy groceries for two from what’s left after paying bills. Sometimes that’s all of $30. Don’t forget gas…or maybe you just won’t go much.
Now just imagine how it would be if you had a lot of money…more than anyone needs. You could write a check for anything, anytime. Forget the budget…there is no lack of money. Yeah, that would be nice. For some this is a reality…for most, it is only a nagging thought on a day when there just isn’t enough to go around.
