“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV)
Think through what your typical expenditures are in a month and list those things that are needs and wants
Is this a need? Is it a want? Does your spouse agree?
Begin to listen to each other’s needs and come to a mutual decision as to what your plan of action will be.
Write on a sheet of paper a T-graph (a line at the top of the page with “Him” on one side and “Her” on the other.)
Write “Needs” and “Wants” underneath the “Him” and “Her.”
Both of you write what you consider are in each of these categories. Discuss and pray to work toward unity!
