Topic: If You Are Broke
Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo
As a believer, being broke is more of a choice than a state.
Proverbs 11:25 It’s all in your mind. It’s possible you’re entertaining negative thoughts about wealth
There is prosperity around every poor person.
There is much wealth around the poor.
But he is suffering because he lacks understanding
If you’re obsessed with adding value, you’ll never lack money. If you’re obsessed with making money, you’ll end up stealing.
If you can solve problems, you will be rich. You can never get wealth by begging, borrowing and get-rich-quick schemes
Stages of Not Being Broke
1. Making Money 2. Managing Money 3. Multiplying Money
Making money starts with solving problems. Nobody can dash you money into prosperity. If you’re broke, you’re simply not solving a problem.
Reasons why you may not be seeing problems
1. Pride 2. Fear 3. Laziness 4. Clueless 5. Selfishness 6. Unfaithfulness
Things You’re Not Treating Right If You Are Broke
1. Time: Time is a convertible resource. Convert it to money. 2. Information: Information is unlimited 3. Relationships: Your financial level will have something to do with the four to five people in your life. 4. Your mind 5. Opportunities 6. Talent, gift and passion 7. Money: Money is sensitive and if it sees disrespect in how you treat it, it will start to run from you.
Managing Money Remove pressure. You can’t manage money if you are a people pleaser.
Cut off things that make you waste money. As long as you’re working, you must be able to save something. You don’t live by needs, you live by budget.
When your money increases, don’t increase your lifestyle. Proverbs 21:17
Wealthy people make money even when they are sleeping. Invest your money. Let your money work for you. Train your eyes to see opportunities. Do your research. There are no risk-free investments.
