Best Investment Advice Ever

5
During my morning pick-up-all-the-poop from all the Walk by Faith Ministry dogs this morning, I began to meditate on investing my trust in God and stumbled upon a wonderful metaphor of how short I have sold myself in investing my trust in God. I realized a wise investor likely invests his or her earnings in multiple investments to ensure there is always a good backup plan if one investment goes sour. But a wise investor in God does just the opposite. A wise investor in God puts his or her trust in God alone because no backup plan is needed. In fact, quite the opposite is true.

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.”

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

  2. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.
