Where I have most fallen short in my walk with the Lord is in being a foolish investor. I have made investments in all sorts of people, places, and things in addition to God, and many of them were high-risk investments to say the least. I invested some of my heart and mind in God, but much of it I invested in man and the world. Guess what investments went sour? You’ve got it. We are not called to put our trust in man; we are called to trust God. Guess which investment always produced the very best? You’ve got it. Every ounce of my heart and mind I have invested in God have reaped rewards beyond measure.
I am learning increasingly that following the Lord means I will be called to go against the wisdom of the world. How many financial advisers would counsel me to put a million dollars into one single stock? How foolish would that be? In God’s Kingdom, it is foolishness to do what I have done – to spread my trust all around the world rather than place it all in Him. I am excited to learn how to put my entire trust in Him. I most certainly will be a fool in the world’s eyes, but I know He is the best investment ever.
Pro 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Pro 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
