Thoughts on Investment and Money built on a Christ-Centered Mindset

Are you willing to trek the long and arduous road?

These days we are often encouraged to think BIG, think POSITIVE, speak LIFE! All fantastic, and I do all of them myself. I even have a physical and digital vision board I look at all the time.

We all want to be like King David, Joseph, Boaz etc.

But, how many of us are willing to:
- Face rejection (David was almost an afterthought as Jesse didn't seem to be interested in presenting him to Samuel initially)?

- Fight the lion and the bear?

- Be on the run most of your young adult life?

- Have your wife taken from you and given to another?

- Do the right thing even if it may cost you your life?

- Be misunderstood?

- Get betrayed by your brothers?

- Get sold as a slave?

- Learn how to manage a household / business from the ground up (or in our modern context, parenting and dealing with business / staffing issues)?

- Be wrongly accused?

- Learn how to manage the worst of society?

- Be generous with your wealth?

- Be kind and take care of others?

The list is pretty long.

Because often, the path to becoming a Boaz, Joseph or David, can be pretty long and arduous. It is also very tempting, and probably easier, to give up and just coast.

What is your choice?
