Get Good Advice, Plan Ahead, Save, Diversify And Be Faithful
Here are a few of the things I learned from the verses in this article:
..if riches increase, do not set your heart on them Psalm 62:10
Get advice from others who know more than you.
Only a fool doesn’t plan ahead.
It’s good to save, invest and multiply your holdings.
Don’t forget to have diverse holdings in order to reduce risk.
Invest in a way that’s faithful to God’s word, and that doesn’t harm others.
Don’t rely on money, rely on God.
It’s good to plan ahead and to provide for your family, but don’t allow money to become your ultimate goal. Instead, set your sights on Christ and his example.
He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous shall flourish as the green leaf. Proverbs 11:28
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
