What is the Law of Financial S ecurity?

“After paying your tithing of 1 0 percent to the Lord, you pay yours elf a predetermined amount directly into savings. That leaves you a balance of your income to budget for taxes, food, clothing, shelter,transportation, etc.”
L. Tom Perry, “Becoming S elf-Reliant,” Ensign, Nov. 1 991 , 64


In Short…

♦Pay the Lord
♦Pay Yourself
♦ Pay Everything Else

The Law of Financial Security
♦ Earn More Than You Spend… ??? – Wisdom of the World ♦ The Lord’s description may be something

like this:
– Spend less than you earn…
• And accumulate the rest.

If You Can’t Have…
♦ $100.00 and notspend it, you will never

have $10,000.00. ♦ $10,000.00 and not spend it, you will never have $1,000,000.00. ♦ Proverbs 21:20 (Wise = Treasure)

Where Does Self-reliance Come From?
♦ The Money Tree ♦ The ATM or Credit Card Tree ♦ Mom and Dad ♦ Inheritance (Trust Fund) ♦ The Bank ♦ The Government ♦ The Company that Employs Us

♦ Our Ability and Willingness to Work

The Key toSelf-reliance…WORK
♦ “We cannot be self-reliant without being

willing to work. Work is physical, mental, or spiritual effort. The Lord has commanded us to work, for work is a basic source of happiness, self-esteem, and prosperity. It is the way we accomplish good things in our lives.” ♦ Self Reliance = Work… ♦ Adam and Eve
(Providing in the Lord’s Way)
