The Money You Save ? You Lose
The Money You Spend ? You Enjoy
The Money You Give ? You Save
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt
and where thieves do not break through nor steal."
THE MONEY YOU There are men that cramp and save and hoard. Fear is upon them
SAVE. that they will not be able to meet the pressing financial needs of a
growing business. They must increase, multiply, save, in order to
have. Have in order to meet growing competition in business, maintain their prestige, keep,
some competitor from forging ahead. "This night thy soul shall be required of thee, and then
whose shall those things be ? all lost, or the lawyer's?"
THE MONEY YOU There is enjoyment in the lavish expenditure of money, vieing with
Spend. your neighbors in the extent of your travels, in the fineness of your
home, in the magnificence of your wardrobe, in the style in which
you are able to maintain your family, in the elegance of your office, in the extent of your busi
ness connection. But this enjoyment is Vanity ? an empty show.
THE MONEY YOU A seed is planted in China, a dollar from this, and that one, has enabled
GIVE. someone to carry the message of Jesus to a soul. That soul is brought
to life ? and brings another, and that one another and another; Seed
time and harvest continue.
A dollar or so is used to educate a boy; he is brought to life; he brings another to life, and
another and another. Seed time and harvest continue.
A dollar or so is used to plant a church in a neglected field; one and then another and an
other is brought to the light of God. Seed time and harvest continue year after year.
That which you gave you have saved and you have it, doubled and trebled, again and again.
The money you have represents power
How will you use it?
