Time is money – Benjamin Franklin

Time is money –
Benjamin Franklin

My Ponderings

Yes it can be used for that. And money can buy you some time.

You can earn more money but not more time.

Money is precious but time more so, if used well.

Let’s appreciate and use both time and money to their fullest.

While at it, let’s always love people and use money (not the other way around).

Whoever brings blessings will be enriched… Pondering Proverbs 11:24 — 25

“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.”

Proverbs 11:24 — 25

My take : Some sage, supernatural advice here. Often is contrary to my nature, how about yours?

But it confirms that givers gain. It like the difference between the Sea of Gallilee and the Dead Sea. The one that only receives is the dead. The one that receives and gives is alive and flourishing.

As the late great Zig Ziglar was found of saying, ‘You can have everything in life you want if you help enough others get what they want’.

Time to get to blessing.

Distribution of wealth (socialism) is wrong – Thomas Jefferson

“A wise and frugal government shall not take
from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned” – Thomas Jefferson

Wonder why he wrote this?

Disincentive to take risk and invest in business which creates wealth.

Promotes laziness and slackers while creating reliance upon big government (vote for us, we will take care of you).

Inflation increases when government manipulation starts happen by printing money. Heck, these days they just create it electronically out of thin air, particularly since we are off the gold standard.

Taxation to redistribute wealth is against the Word of God and all things capitalistic. This was not the intent of our founding fathers.

Bad yet lawful theft and stealing if just wrong.
