Here is how to make an honest living, with confidence and minimal worry:

Determine how much you need to provide for your family needs.

Next, get into a business that can make that sum of money.

Now, put your best foot forward to do whatever needs to be done.

But no more than that. More will get you less.

Then pray for compassion, and trust in the One who provides all life to provide your livelihood as well.

You’ve put out your bucket just the right size in the rain. Now trust that heaven will fill it to the brim.
