scrimp [skrimp] v. 1. to be sparing or restrictive; to limit severely.
I once heard a speaker at a women’s conference say that even though she had a really tight grocery budget, she always made room for fresh flowers. At the time I thought she was crazy. Why would anyone spend money on flowers (a luxury) when she had so little money for food (a necessity)? I now see her wisdom.
Beauty is a necessity.
God created us for beauty. Look at the amazing creation around us. The unique variety in the fish in the ocean and the plant life on land reveal God’s love for beauty.
There are times when the goal of saving money impoverishes us rather than enriching us. We choose austerity in the name of thrift, rather than living life more abundantly.
It’s not just a matter of how much money we spend or save. The important thing is to make our choices of spending and saving with a higher goal in mind.
How can you live abundantly today?
