Finding Investment Balance
If you’re an investor, have you set clear goals?
In the Parable of the Talents, God gave to the stewards according to their abilities. Each was rewarded or punished according to his faithful stewardship. There’s a difference between investment performance and investment purpose. Performance varies with knowledge and skill or factors often beyond our control.
Purpose, however, is a matter of intent. As you learn to invest money according to God’s principles, you’ll find that God will increase your opportunity to help others. That’s the true purpose of Godly investing, not to raise your standard of living but to raise your standard of giving. Balance in investing is found by setting clear goals to give more as the Lord provides the increase.
