Did you grow up with a tin or piggy bank that you put coins into as a way to save?
My parents’ church have provided a little jar with a slit in the top that they encourage their congregation to put loose change into. At the end of the month they then bring it to church as an offering towards a particular mission that the church supports. This is a great way to build up an offering on a regular basis! And chances are, most people don’t miss it.
Now if this small amount consistently can help to support a missionary through a church, what can it do for you? Please note: I’m not saying don’t support something God has called you to support just so you can build your savings! What I am saying is that every little bit adds up.
Do you do something similar at home? Or do you have loose coins sitting in your wallet? Down the side of your couch? In a console in your car? Perhaps in a dish on a table in your hallway. Maybe in many different places?
At the end of the day, if your money is sitting where it isn’t earning interest, it is costing you money. It could be working for you! I encourage you today to generate one place to put this loose change that you may have and on a monthly basis to tally it and take it to your bank and put it into savings. Chances are, this little bit regularly will add up over time!
