Living Within Margin

When I was still in school, my favorite part in Arts subject is doing the margin. I love doing it and I am very good at it. Margin is the space set so that it will not go beyond what is good to look at, (in other words; appropriate).
In our lives, we have margins, too. Margin is the space between ourselves and our limits. God created the world with "margins".
*He sets the Sunday to be the day of rest.
*He commanded the land to separate from the water.
*He commanded us to give His tithes on what we make.
*He place the night to end the day. (...and many more.)
To most people, setting financial margin is the most difficult task. Here are some suggestion on how you put margin in your finances:
1. Have a "kingdom-first" thinking
2. Embrace counter-culture
3. Live within your harvest
4. Practice discipline & budgeting
5. Resist impulses
6. Share and lend what you have
"(The) seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful." Mark 4:18-19 (NIV)
