Franklin writes, “Beware of little expenses: a small leak will sink a great ship.”
I started thinking about little expenses and quickly realized that this is a transferable principle! It has multiple applications!
Financially, stop drinking coffee and see how it impacts your budget!
Spiritually, carve out minutes a day to meditate on a Scripture and see how it impacts your life!
Relationally, date your spouse every week and see how it impacts your marriage!
Chores around the house, do one small thing a day and see how quickly that “to-do” list shrinks!
The little things are a big deal!
One more word on this matter from Franklin:
“For the want of a nail the shoe is lost; for the want of a shoe the horse is lost; for the want of a horse the rider is lost.”
What would have happened if the rider had paid attention to the nail in the shoe?
