Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Classic interview question right? Well, more specifically, where do you want to see yourself, financially in five years? Out of debt? Buying your own home? Having nicer cars? (Or just cars that you don’t have to worry about breaking down?) Actually having a savings account? If you don’t have some sort of goal then more likely than not five years will come and go and you’ll be no closer to these dreams.
Second question, do you know where your spouse wants to be in five years? Have you ever talked about it? Did you know that money problems are the number one reason that couples fight and/or get divorced? Crazy right?
What about God? Did you know that sixteen of Jesus’ thirty-eight parables were concerned with the handling of money and possessions?
