Think About Your Finances

Real money comes and goes; more important is how you manage your finances. It’s been a long time since I’ve known how money works; the rule of 72 is an eye opener. The rule of 72 is a simple way to determine how long it will take your funds to double; it is based on an annual interest rate divided by 72 equal to the number of years it takes to see some real growth in overtime. As an example let’s say an investment of 1K with an annual return of 1.0% more than your bank currently pays; it will take 72 years to double your funds. (72/1 = 72 years). The money will grow by just 2k over a 72 year period.

Now, take the same 1K invested right in the financial markets at the rate of 10% which is historically average, it will take 7.2 years to double your funds. As such, in a 72 -year period there is a 10 doubling period or $ 955,594 just under 1 million dollars; not bad at 1K.

It doesn’t take a crisis to get the attention of our finances, it does take a year to process how to manage money properly.

It’s at times like these that it gets our attention to slow down and think things through before we act on motivation. Likewise, it is another way to get God’s attention; for those of us who believe that He is the true and living God. He is in complete control of this situation and has the whole world in his hands.
