Today’s challenge is both spiritual and physical. I’m challenging you to create a budget! Creating a budget is a physical area activity, as it deals with the physical world of money. But it is also a spiritual issue, because most faiths do call for us to give a portion of our money away. How we choose to handle our money reflects our spiritual values.
So, if you are a Sensing person, your challenge is to create a budget based on the Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew 5 – 7. This requires you to take a very abstract set of factors and put them into a concrete form. Should be a great exercise!
If you are an INtuitive person, your challenge is to create a budget based on facts alone. You can either use the free website Mint.com, or the principles outlined by Dave Ramsay. Rather than look at the big picture, start with the smallest details and work your way up to a total budget. You’ll need to go back and review purchases to get good data.
