Here is a paraphrase of Genesis 41: 33-36…
…It will explain, in the modern language of today, what your Bible says to you about Joseph and Pharaoh:
“Let a man take up a fifth (20%) of his income in the years of plenty. Let him lay up that fifth part during the good years and let him keep it to work for him. And that surplus will be for a storehouse against the years when he cannot work; that he perish not through the famine of old age.”
Many people enjoy a happy financially secure old age because, like Joseph, they planned it that way. You can do the same. Doing what God wants us to do creates a peace of mind that the earth, with all its joys, cannot give. God is not a troublemaker; He is a wonderful “peace-of-mind-maker” who wants you to be a financial success throughout your whole life.
Here is a formula for financial successes that can work for you, but only if you are willing to take action and do it. All you have to do is obey a few simple rules that lead to success with your money. Following the “10-70-20 Plan” assures financial success because:
(1) You will always have money;
(2) You will always be living within your means and;
(3) You will always have your debts under your control.
Here is the “10-70-20 Plan:”
(1) The first 10% of your net income (after tithe and taxes) is set aside for savings for yourself, never to be spent.
(2) The next 70% of your net income is used to pay your living expenses;
(3) The remaining 20% of your net income is for the payment of debts.
Do you see how this ties in with the Bible’s wisdom that you see in Genesis 41:33-36? If you will follow this plan, you will build an estate for yourself and your loved ones. You must understand, there is no reason under the sun why you cannot be among the few who obey God’s rules that lead to success with money.
Read your Bible. Search out every bit of wisdom you can find there about how to be a better Christian money manager and you will soon discover there are more than eight hundred (800+) ways to be rich when most of the people in the world around you are experiencing poverty or financial famine due to their not knowing what you now know from reading your Bible.
