"Labor not to be rich:
cease from thine own wisdom.
Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
they fly away as an eagle toward heaven."
Proverbs 23:4-5
"Riches Have Wings!"
People in their search for security eventually find out, nothing is forever.
Money being spent for pleasure, and even daily needs, is soon gone.
People put their money into what they believe to be sound investments,
such as stocks, bonds, real estate,
or they fill their safety deposits boxes with jewelry and cash. However, no investment, and no safety deposit place on earth is safe.
Stock markets go down as business firms fail.
Banks close their doors every day.
And natural disasters wipe away the value of land and buildings.
We may look at investments as future security
or burglar-proofed to common thieves,
but time and death ~ the cleverest thief of all,
take away the owners.
And so, we end our days as we began them,
Now I have to ask,
How much wiser is the Christian who,
through the love of Christ,
is generous toward the Lord and invests
time, talents, and treasures in that which will bring
eternal dividends!?
Jesus tells us,
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also."
Matthew 6:19-21
May the good Lord help us to look at where and to what purpose we are placing our investments.
(This inspiration today was inspired after selling one share of stock which was given to me as a gift over two years ago, at which time it was worth
a little over $65. Today it closed at $47.32)
