Today I think most attempt to make calculated and informed decision with our money on how to spend and used it resourcefully.
We make calculated decisions on what a service or object is worth having. Some on the other hand have plenty of money yet still use their ingenuity to make choices.
What is money anyhow- time spent at the job, a paycheck, a means to an end? Others its something only they can describe.
Take risks, take calculated chances, love generously, give generously.
In Luke 16:8 "For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light. And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you in everlasting habitations.
