Investments

These are pretty troubling times for anyone investing in the stock market. Economic uncertainty and a down turn in the markets has left many wondering where their investment went. Unfortunately, that also includes those with a 401K or other retirement account tied to stocks. 

You could get all caught up in the situation and stress about the potential loss or you can consider other investments that are more important. Investing in your family, especially children, is a very worthy investment. Invest in their school life through support, involvement, and financial assistance to gain the highest level of education possible. Invest by spending time in teaching life lessons, good citizenship, and sound morale principles. Take the time, make a difference, and be committed to investing in sharing the Word and providing an example of Jesus Christ. 

God invested in His children through His only Son, Jesus. Through Christ's sacrifice, and triumph over death, the chasm created by sin can be closed so that none may be separated from Him. God demonstrated the importance of investing in things that can not be counted, valued, measured, or stored up. Worldly investments are temporary, but Heavenly investments are eternal. What are you investing in? Be sure to carefully evaluate your eternal portfolio and ensure the presence of a diversification of opportunities and commitments to positively impact the lives of your children, grandchildren and God's children that need the love of Christ. 

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:20-21
