Just like Noah and his family were on the ark, in order to move forward in your financial life and reach Prosperity, a minimum requirement is that everyone should be on the same boat, because you and your family are literally sailing in the same financial boat.
Likewise, each person in your family must take personal responsibility for controlling their spending so prosperity is in sight. Imagine for a moment that this vessel has a small hole under each seat. If you want to keep the ark from sinking, each person must take their seat and commit to staying in their seat so that the holes are plugged in and the ark does not sink.
As a Clergy, I’ve spent hours counseling people I’ve performed the wedding, and in every case I like to talk with the couple about not only compatibility , but also their relationship with money. In my Bestselling Book Secrets of Jewish Wealth Revealed! A Road map to Prosperity I teach that if you and your partner are not in the same financial mind-frame, then chances are your marriage will fail. Financial problems are the number one cause of divorce.
The ancient Greeks had more than one word for love, including the word agape. In the English language, we have one word for love, which translates into our sexual drive.
It means to compromise or sacrifice, and it’s the kind of love I’ve seen in all couples who have gotten married and stayed married. It is my opinion that this kind of love determines the entire success of your married life, and to an extent, it’s a good part of your financial life too.
The road to prosperity always takes a little bit of sacrifice, and would be impossible to do on your own. Once you and your spouse realize that mutual sacrifice is an essential part of your marriage, you are well on your way to achieving bliss in planning for your finances together.
