It's Gonna Rain!

This past Sunday night, I started leading Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University at our church. The lesson was the importance of saving. I know, I know, this is a familiar road, but it's also major highway that must be taken when getting to our financial destination.
I cannot stress the importance of saving up for when emergencies come across your life. How many of us had parents or grandparents who admonished us to save up for a rainy day?
I'm not some doom and gloom guy, but we all know that cars break down, medical bills can get high, appliances need replaced, kids need trips to the emergency room, and layoffs happen. Life has this habit of happening, and usually, in combination within a short time frame.
I'm not saying you need to save for the sake of beating you over the head. I'm saying you need to save now, so when life does happen, you can have at least some sense of peace that what you're going through can be dealt with and not lead to financial stress.
