Living Within Your Income
by John Mathews
The Coldwater, Michigan Seventh-day Adventist Church devoted the weekend of October 1, 2011 to Stewardship emphasis. I focused on how postmodern culture affects our stewardship of giving.
Other finance topics included budgets, credit cards, how to buy a home and car and retirement. That is where I met Lester Trubey who is a member of the Burlington, Michigan Seventh-day Adventist Church.
At a break in the seminar he handed me a three by five card titled, “Motto for Living.” The card read, “I am 103 years and eight months old and have borrowed only $300.00 in 103 years. I have no computer, no cell phone, and no credit card.”
He concluded confidently, “I have no debts.”
