Today we had an announcement from Salt Lake about using our finances wisely. They pointed out that we shouldn't put all of our eggs in one basket (that would be the boiled-down version). Interesting that my mom said there's been a LOT of problems with scams in which members of the church lose their lives savings.
Sad that church members would do this to each others.
Sad anyone would do that.
I am so thankful for the guidance that the church provides. I mean, not placing all your eggs in one basket, not going into debt -- those are huge concepts, and yet they're simple ones. Ones that if you live by you can avoid a world of hurt.
God has always said it's the small things that you do that will bring you eternal happiness. Sometimes I think it's the big things I do -- life changing moments that I might have a part in, but I am slowly realizing that it's not.
The little things, the choices we make, I think that's where the "big deal" lies.
P.S. Did anyone get the announcement in church that those who were born during President Hinckley's administration were not generals in the war in heaven? I was hoping we'd hear about that from the bishop, but this advice was much more usable. :)
