In this submission, we continue our discussion on Multiplication and Compound Interest. However, in our last discussion we dialogued a bit about the flip side of the coin of money.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
If you have four children in your home, and decide to teach and train them on what needs to be done in the house, what is the outcome of situation?
D. All of the Above
Answer: D. All of the Above
Multiplication is Compound Interest.
And you, be ye fruitful, andmultiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein. (Genesis9:7)
The Kingdom of God is to be fruitful and MULTIPLY. Not be fruitful and add, not be fruitful and subtract, not be fruitful and divide. We are to be fruitful and MULTIPLY. The ANSWER to a multiplication problem is a PRODUCT, and fruit is the end product of being fruitful. This is not the means to the end, but the means that leads to the beginning of multiplication.
Wikipedia’s definition of Compound Interest (We added underline, caps and bold for emphasis):
Compound Interest arises when interest is ADDED to the principal, so that, from that moment on, the interest that has been ADDED also earns interest. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding.
As we build a case of multiplication being compound interest we will use these terms and meanings to simplify this exercise.
Principal- Amount of the initial investment (ex.an amount borrowed excluding interest).
Interest-A fee paid for by the BORROWER oft he principal.
Compound interest – Interest added to the PRINCIPAL allowing the interest to earn further interest.
Here are the resource links used to compile and connect the thoughts:
The Holy Spirit
Money will and can work with you if have something for money to do. Money works WITH us because money takes on the CHARACTER and PERSONA of the person who it (money) is paired with.
When money is paired with us,money takes on the life we believe to be a reality.
Let’s build a bridge between money and thoughts:If you have four children in your home, and decide to teach and train them on what needs to be done in the house the outcome is that your efforts will be multiplied. No child in the house is left IDLE because all have been taught in the way he/she should go.
The Father’s business has been taught throughout the house, and He is evidence of what has been taught through the thoughts, behaviors and actions of His children.
COMPOUND INTEREST INSPIRED
Compound Interest: The addition of interest (concerning money) through an initial deposit from Him to and through US.
The Principal is amount of the initial investment (or His Nature) that has been deposited on the inside of us that influences how we work with the money he releases to us.
The Interest the fee paid for by the BORROWER(which is us) of the principal (the initial investment of His Nature). The more interest will acquire concerning His Ways, Words and Pleasures, the greater the Compound Interest. The key words here are Obedience and Sacrifice.
Remember: Interest rates are determined are by the GOVERNMENT.A high interest rate is the green light that indicates a high cost of borrowing. Though the fee may seem high we can’t get distracted with counting the cost. We must be encouraged by the outcome, and not become discouraged by the process.
What you sow, you will reap…
Which leads us to…
The Compound Interest added to the PRINCIPAL (initial investment or His Nature) allowing the INTEREST(fee paid for by the BORROWER) to earn further interest.
The greater the interest, the greater the return on the principal (or the initial investment off His Nature that was deposited on the inside of us). Not only the quantity, but more importantly the quality of His Nature influences how we work with the money he releases to us.
Freely we give, freely we receive.
