Pioneer Operating Budget

It’s that time of year when school graduations take place. You, or someone close to you, may have already celebrated this milestone, or perhaps it’s just around the corner.

Graduations matter! They mark a significant accomplishment—the culmination of years of study, hard work, and hopefully, worthwhile education along the way. The regalia might look funny, but it represents something. For some, graduation is a miracle they once thought might be impossible. For others, it’s the expected result from their investment. And then what?

The day after graduation might mean starting a job or maybe continuing with more schooling. Time marches on. Even with photos and video clips of graduation, you must still face another day. As you look back, one question that often surfaces is, “Was it worth it?” Did all the time and money and study pay off, or was it merely a passing chapter of life with little to show for all the investment made?

That’s true for all of us, whether or not we’re formally graduating. What do you have to show for the investments you’ve made? God repeatedly reminds us to invest in Him and in others for eternity. Is it worth it? It actually turns out to be more than a passing chapter of life. It is life—and eternal life at that. The investment of our time, temple, talent, and treasure (the pillars of stewardship) pays off when we take it to graduation and beyond.
