Are you a slave to your money? Or is your money your slave?

I was one of those people brought up with injunctions like “you cannot serve both God and money”.
The way it played out for me was that I didn’t really concern myself at all with money. And I certainly wasn’t about to make it an objective to – God forbid – accumulate wealth (and for that matter, I didn’t really make it an objective to have basic savings, either).

And then it struck me like lightning: having to scramble and not having enough for unexpected things and having to fret about how to pay the bills and not having savings and having a growing fear of growing old without RRSPs and sleepless anxious nights—- all that was an indicator that I was serving money after all.

It still took a number of years to reprogram my core beliefs about money esp. vis-a-vis my spirituality. But somewhere along the way it became so very obvious that actively managing my finances, ensuring I have savings for things ranging from emergency vet visits to my annual holidays, and yes, building a nest egg (accumulating wealth) means money is in service to me, not vice versa.

How ’bout you? Are you enslaved by money? Or is money serving you?
