Do you place your investment on the front end of a project?

Scripture gives us a great example of investing on the front end of a project. Elijah met a widow who was nearly out of food. He instructed her, "...do not fear; go, ... but make me me a little bread cake ... first, ... and afterward you may make one for yourself..." 1 Kings 17:13 NASB).

We then learn that the flour jar was never exhausted due to the Lord's provision. In business decisions, invest at the beginning of a project. Plan the amount of cash or capital required to accomplish a goal, and then commit the funds. Then, your business jar will not soon run empty.
