Missouri's 7th District, U.S. House of Representatives




God is Making Me More


Multiplying my resources through appropriate use and wise investments so I have more to give back to God.

1. Frugal; sparing; using economy and good management of property.
2. More generally, thriving by industry and frugality; prosperous in the acquisition of worldly goods; increasing in wealth; as a thrifty farmer or mechanic

"Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?"
Luke 16:11

Though parliamentary statutes forbade the making of woollen goods or hats or steel for export, the colonists were free to make anything they might need for use or sale within a single colony or in their own homes; and the thrifty New England farmers and villagers made most of their own furniture, tools, and household utensils, while their women or the village weavers wove the linen and woollen stuffs of which their clothes were made. They lived upon their own resources as no other colonists did. And their trade kept six hundred vessels busy plying to and fro to English and foreign ports
Woodrow Wilson, History of the American People, Vol.2, p.107-8

I know how to make the most of limited resources

During times of plenty I prepare for known needs.

I know how to live with basic provisions

I take care of what I have to extend its usefulness

I do not permit myself or others spend that which is not necessary

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. -- Romans 8:28-29

O how love I Thy Law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through Thy Commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for Thy Testimonies are my meditation. -- Psalm 119:97

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
