8 Investments God Wishes You to Make

English Audio Version

Money destroys many people’s lives.

For others, it’s a blessing that makes their lives easier.

God sees money differently than we do. To him, our material possessions (our money) benefit us best when we invest them by his standards.

Here’s 8 Investments God Wishes You to Make.

Ecclesiastes 11:1-2 tells us to share our wealth, and good will come of it. 

“Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what disaster may happen on earth.”

Acts 20:35 reminds us that the needy are a Godly investment in those around us.

“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Matthew 25:27 clarifies that our money isn’t ours. We should invest it in the good things of God.

“Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.”

1 John 3:17 tells us our family is a good investment of our funds.

“But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?”

Proverbs 13:22 advises us to invest in our children’s futures.

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, but the sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.”

1 Corinthians 16:2 tells us to open a savings account. Find a good investment banker to manage your funds.

“On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come.”

Nehemiah 8:10 encourages us to invest in living a good life and enjoy the things God has showered upon us.

“Then he said to them, ‘Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.’ ”

Zephaniah 1:18 reminds us that our bank account isn’t our safe haven. We should invest our resources in the work of God, for he is our protection against what will come.

“Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the Lord. In the fire of his jealousy, all the earth shall be consumed; for a full and sudden end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth.”

Let’s get aligned with God. Let’s see money his way.

Let’s invest what he’s given us back into the work of the Lord.

You’ll live better when you invest your money God’s way.

Excerpt of the Day

Sometimes it’s good to be angry, when the target of our ire is the travesty of sin.
