This month we found out that all that hassle did not result in a 15% discount, but an 8% discount. And the 8% discount was not on the whole bill, but just on the one phone line. And the $6.40 we saved was off-set by the fact that they charged us a month advanced payment so our first bill was half again what our previous monthly bills were.
With our new discount we will break even in about fifteen months. WHAT A DEAL! And we still have all the inconveniences of having a "new" account - which so far will not let me pay online, etc.
What a SCAM! Somebody is laughing all the way to the bank, but it isn't us.
What we need is a REAL VALUE!
(Proverbs 4:5–7 NKJV) Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
(Proverbs 16:16 NKJV) How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.Here is a biblical value - Wisdom. Wisdom will always pay dividends. So where do we find wisdom?
(Psalms 111:10 NKJV) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.Wisdom begins with a right relationship with God and obedience to God's Word. In submitting to God's righteousness - salvation by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ - there is ETERNAL VALUE. Living in obedience to God's word yields eternal dividends.
In Christ there are no false promises and no disappointments!
