Seven-year-old Cade (with tears in his eyes): “Daddy, I really, really, really want to buy a lego Ninja warrior.”
Ken: “Oh… those are $10. But you spent all your money, right?”
Cade (crying harder): “I know, I know, I know. I thought that I was spending my money on what I wanted. But then, when I go back to the store, there’s always something else that I want!”
Ken, patting his back: “I know, Buddy. It’s hard. But if you start saving, you’ll have ten dollars soon enough. Well… actually you might want to save a little more, because of tax.”
Cade (with tears now dripping from his chin): “I know! I hate the tax! Whenever I think I have enough money, I take it up to pay, and they say I have to pay the tax, too!!”
Ken (who is working on our taxes for the year), nodding his head sympathetically: “I know, Buddy. I know.”
Whether you’re paying tax on an income or tax on a Ninja warrior this month, here’s a great verse to keep in mind:
 Hebrews 13:5a “Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have…”
