"Money is God in Action"
(An Excerpt from The Wisdom of Solomon
by Paul Solomon)
. . . Where do you start if you are flat broke? The thing to do if
you are flat broke is to look around at the needs in your neighborhood and start meeting a
need. Start meeting any genuine need that is before you. If someones lawn needs
mowing, do it. If someones house needs repair, see that it gets done. If there is a
need for volunteers in your community, which there always is, get involved. Look for a way
to meet the needs of others. Do not just look for a way to earn money.
Focusing on a way to make money is a mistake. Most individuals make that mistake and, as a
result, receive only a portion of what is available to them.
Look for a need that you would like to meet, and then look for a way to meet it. Become
involved in the lives of others. When you make yourself valuable to others, money will
come to you automatically. Make yourself valuable. Make yourself valuable to someone who
has a need, and you will be paid in return for your giving. The source of your payment may
not be the person you helped, but someone will pay you. If you are making yourself
valuable to others, money will come to you.
Once you are making yourself valuable by meeting the needs in peoples lives, ask
your source, God, to meet your needs. Then, go ahead and live as if that prayer is being
answered. Live your life expecting that your needs will be met, knowing that what you have
asked for is coming to you.
The law of precipitation can be stated as simply as this:
Whatsoever thing you ask in prayer, believing that you have already received it, you
If you ask for something believing that it is yours, it is on its way. It is already
yours. It is something that you can count on. With that sense of expectancy -- asking for
it and believing that you have already received it, assuming that it already exists for
you and that it is on its way -- then, get on with your life.
Get busy with the next step. Get busy with your reason for being here, and what you need
will automatically come to you. Another law of money says If you are doing something
that should be done, the universe will provide the means to finance it, and you.. .
