DON'T FOOL YOURSELF!
Misfortunes CAN happen to you. You are not im mune! Suppose your wife took sick and you lost your work at the same time? It would be hard luck, wouldn't it? What would you do ? Suppose you were injured in some kind of an acci dent. Then suppose you were laid up for several months and that your pay should stop. What would you do? How would you make ends meet? Suppose you die. What would your wife do? Could she keep the family together? Even if she could, it would mean long slaving that you could have saved her. Suppose you drop into our bank today and let us talk to you about a bank account. You will feel a whole lot safer with a rainy-day fund in the bank.
