Page 10, The Tuskegee News, September 12, 1996 Rev. Mark D. Michael Financing Our Future Away! REV. MARK D. MICHAEL Washington Chapel A.M.E. Church Credit has underminec~ the Amer~ca!~ socity by c~ausiag ,, us to spend money we do not h~~ ~s~Ca~, ~d the! past to finance.our present. For, ia~taac.e, ~aa]~a~Lto work for weeks in order to buy a new suit, this meant that when he received the suit it was paid for; his past work gave him the opportunity to rejoice in the accomplishment. Today, we finance our present with our future; credit cards, loans, bills of every sort are examples of this. This means that we are constantly spending money we have not yet even made. Americans are spending millions of dollars today on things they will have to pay for in the future. In essence, we finance our present with our future. This under- mines our work ethic. What motivation does a person have to work hard when she/he has already spent the money? Thus creating a con- stantly unmotivated work force, not to mention a society that is constantly on the verge of a "recession" or "depression." We as Christians must learn to, as best we can, finance our present with our past. This means getting rid of all cred- it cards except that one we are able to pay off monthly, learn- ing to keep one car until it is paid off and we can ride "free." Not taking out loans for everything but instead saving our money until we can afford to buy the things we desire in "cash." Learning to be content with the nice clothes we have and staying away from foolish competitions between vain peo- ple. But most of all, tithing a tenth of all we earn to the Lord. One will never see the windows of heaven open and bless- ings coming down until one learns to have faith enough to tithe his/her money to the Lord. Your future success is in your hand, be wise my friend, be wise! Sources: Lecture: Rabbi Dr. Zvi Shappiro, The Interdenominational Theological Center Fall 1995 Sm/ ,.
