I believe we should do the best we can with the budgets we have.
I believe in encouraging one another.
That said, there are some very real questions brought up in our discussion this week. Here are a few I struggle with:
- Are my children entitled to a balanced and nutritious diet, or foods as optimal as my husband's paycheck can afford?
- Should I strive for balance and use the rest to sponsor a Compassion child?
- Is it better to drive 10 miles farther for local food, or walk down the street to buy groceries instead?
- Am I discouraging you because I can do this for $50, or does this give you hope that you could eat for less if you needed to?
