A very insightful discussion on a Christian’s financial investments. As God’s stewards, we are called to generate strong financial returns on our investments. Wisdom would likewise guide us to place it on projects, and companies that are very close to our faith, values and beliefs.
Set cash aside for savings, also to prepare for financial opportunities that may present themselves. Diversify and invest in high-quality assets. The impact of war on our finances is imminent, but when you plan and commit it to the Lord, He will be your shelter and shield. Proverbs 16:3 assures us “Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.”
Take a look around the world and you would agree that the world is very different. It has changed. Natural and man-made disasters, COVID-19, and of course, war.
