Madly in Love Monday
Last year, we were both asked to speak at a financial forum. Speaking together was reminiscent of college.
Before, I have mentioned that Engineer is very good at getting right to the point. He was talking about the sense of entitlement that people have which hinders their ability to achieve financial success. His point was that everyone feels like they "deserve" to do or have something or another.
Engineer boiled it down to this, "You don't deserve God's grace and you don't deserve to go out to eat."
I am madly in love this Monday because my Engineer is wise.

More people should plainly speak the truth like your husband. I'm really trying to drive this point home with my children to spare them the grief that comes with greed and a sense of entitlement.ReplyDelete
Well Ms. Kristin, that point is hard to make especially as a parent. Every time I turn around commercials say "you deserve this" and reality shows have their skewed since of fairness where they think they deserve some special treatment. Kiddos are bombarded with that notion. It's our job as parents though to teach them humility and hard work.ReplyDelete
