Investment Advice

Ecclesiastes 11:1-2,4,6 (NLT) – Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you.  But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead.  Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant.  If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.  Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another – or maybe both.

I love when Scripture is so practical!  Can you believe this advice was written by King Solomon nearly 3000 years ago?  Some things never change.  Some truths are just true.

What lesson(s) do you hear? 

The commentary at explains it well.  Diversify your investments because no one knows what will happen; you should be ready for anything.  If you don’t commit until you’re absolutely certain of success, you’ll never do anything.  Understand that your control of the future is limited.  Just keep working hard in the hopes that at least one of your ventures will succeed.
