If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.
If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames. When I give away a Silver Eagle, it comes with a notebook. The recipient is instructed to write down something they have learned about money every day. If they face a problem they don’t understand, they are instructed to ask God for wisdom. One of the recipients asked me if I kept a notebook. The question caught me off guard, but I quickly realized this blog is my notebook. I am just sharing everything I have learned with you, my readers. I am still learning. If you read all 500 posts you will notice my understanding of these subjects continues to deepen with time and experience. I don’t have all the answers, but I continue to study, every day. I even study authors with whom I have serious disagreements. Bruce Lee said it very nicely, “Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, and add what is uniquely your own.” Go thou and do likewise.
