Sound Investing

Out of the blue the other day thoughts began to flood my mind about investments. The ads I’d been inundated with from TV and electronic media began to overwhelm my thoughts. Gold, silver, stocks, bonds, inflationary hedges, deflationary hedges. It happened so quickly I didn’t even have time to register the meaning of the thoughts and they had increased almost to a point of confusion when the voice of the Lord cut through like lightening splitting the heavens. His words were, “The best investment you have ever made or could ever make is the investment you have made in the lives of people.”

Friends, we all need a hedge fund of some kind. Some place where you have hedged all your earthly bets. Some place that you can lean back on in hard times or good times. When you have poured into another person’s life, you can always be assured of rich dividends from heaven. When we see a need in a brother or sister and extend our hand, we have laid up a treasure. When we see good that needs doing and we do it we have a favor we can call in some day from the heavens. When some one is hurting, fearful or confused and you bring light into the darkness, you are the light to their world, and salt and light to the earth. The Lord does not miss these acts of grace and glory. You are helping to fill the whole earth with His glory.

Mark 9:41, “For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”
