Given today is a day off, and a day I will be spending at Church and with my family I figured I’d leave my readers with a few of my favorite financial parables for Good Friday. I should be back on Monday (or maybe Tuesday, we’ll see).
You’ll find this list and a few others in my Faves menu up top of this.
In personal finances sometimes a lot can be learned in parable format.
- Parable: Money and the McDonald’s Play Structure
How can my son getting stuck in a McDonald’s play structure have anything to do with money? Read and you will be amused to see where I went with this story.
- Best Financial Advice Ever Given
Outlines a parable my Dad told me when I borrowed a large amount of money from him. I have used this parable many times myself.
- Don’t Pass it to the Other Team
How does the Carleton basketball coach have anything to do with finances? Read and you’ll see a long stretch.
- The Dangers of Advice
How I inadvertently gave very bad financial advice to a dear friend.
- The Good Wine
Sometimes you shouldn’t keep things for too long, just like a special bottle of wine I once had.
- Fathers and Money
Not really a parable, but more of a tip of the hat from the man that I learned the most about life from, even though I am pretty sure he is unaware of just how much I did learn from him.
Enjoy your Family and enjoy the new beginning of this Easter.
