Cattle farmers know that they have to be careful about how they allow their cattle to feed. Cattle have no concept of being frugal with the hay. They will trample half of it into the mud if given the opportunity. Therefore, most farmers will put the hay in some type of container that the cows must reach into to get a bite. This prevents a lot of waste.
A lot of people seem to waste quite a bit of their money. They have an adequate amount coming in, but it still doesn’t seem to be enough to get them through the month.
Maybe you need some safeguards to prevent you from wasting valuable resources. Get some good financial advice. Develop a budget and stick to it. Find someone who will hold you accountable. Taking better care of your income would be comparable to getting a significant raise.
“In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.”—Proverbs 21:20.
