Embromaitim got his paycheck and went directly to the bank to cash it. He took four envelops and divided the cash equally into the four envelops. He wrote on the four envelops what each was for. The first was for tithing, the second was for his debt, the third was for saving, and the fourth was for his expenses. He immediately took the tithe envelope to his church and met with his pastor. They talked for a while about the Bible and had a great conversation about Abraham and the high priest of Salem, the story found in the book of Genesis. At the end of the conversation, Embromaitim gave the pastor his tithe for the month and told him to earmark it for the youth group of the church. They shook hands and prayed.
When Embromaitim returned home he looked at his debt and went to the bank to pay for his bill. He took his second envelop, marked “debt,” payed for the bill. He completely payed for all of his bills for the month and he felt great. The next place he visited was his art painter friend’s house and bought some new paintings from his friend. He used his “savings” envelope and gave the cash to him. They enjoyed a cup of coffee and Embromaitim departed. On the way home, he stopped by the grocery store where he bought all sorts of groceries for the month and payed for it out of his “expenses” envelope.
He finally arrived home and put everything everything away.He had given to the youth group, payed for all of his bills, bought new art for his collection and bought his groceries. And he did it all with his monthly paycheck. He prayed and was thankful.
