It should be noted that the statement “have more interest to deduct” is referring to not just any interest, but interest that can be written off on your tax form to lower your income. This is typically mortgage interest. Interest you pay on credit cards or a car loan is not deductible. Bottom line, avoiding debt is the best course of action.

Alright already; I failed at most of this as I have confessed before to all of you. And like the Psalmist prayed in Psalm 51 I have prayed. God has been good; He has been healing the broken bones (Psalm 51:13).

So, my words affirm the command in Romans 13; AVOID DEBT. HAVE A PLAN!

Mentally Disturbing The Mentally Disturbed

Imagine mentally disturbing the mentally disturbed and not becoming mentally disturbed in the process. I wonder how much I can get out of my company.

A former Nike employee who identifies as “transmasculine” filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against the company last week, claiming gender identity-based harassment due to the use of wrong pronouns.
Jazz Lyles was a computer engineer at Nike from May 2017 to September 2018 and was often “misgendered” by employees, according to the lawsuit. Lyles prefers the pronouns “they/them/their,” according to CBS News.
“When someone refuses to acknowledge a person’s gender identity or insists on referring to them by a gender to which they do not identify (called misgendering), this causes real and significant harm,” the complaint says, according to CBS News. “This is particularly true when a person is misgendered repeatedly on a daily basis.”
Lyles, the suit says, was given the responsibility of educating fellow employees about the preferred pronouns. One co-worker refused to use the preferred pronouns due to religious reasons. Another worker allegedly said, “I know I’m not supposed to call you ‘she-male.” Still, another worker did not want to work with Lyles.

Taxes, taxes, taxes, enough to drive you insane. It is tough to see your hard earned money siphoned off before it is handed to you, but keep your head about it. Some tax money actually goes to what it is supposed to go to. Much of it does not, and that is why you have to help govern by getting involved politically to a degree.

The Scriptures say, “Render therefore to all their due, tax to whom tax is due… But not all deserve honor, not all deserve fear, not all deserve customs, and taxes; give to those that are deserving and not to those that are not deserving. Some lie, cheat, and steal and we don’t want to indiscriminately overlook that. As you can see, I have a lot to say about this so, I’ll stop now.

But, when it comes to finances, the following advice is pretty good even though some of it is counter intuitive. He says it is good to “earn less money.” I hope you understand what he means by that. If not, be sure to ask me so I can clear that up.

This week’s reading on goals reminds me of the need to know the meaning of faith. Without faith, nothing good can be accomplished. Faith is often the starting point. It may lead to prayer. It may lead to accumulating more information. It may lead to putting the first step forward.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
