MAKE YOUR INVEST COUNT!

The best investment to make is in people. I don’t care how much money you have, how much material assets you possess, nor the number of scholastic degrees you attain. At the end of your life all that stuff will belong to someone else. If you don’t believe me take a tour in a Egyptian exhibit! Here is the biblical skinny, you will exit the same way came to this planet. Naked you came from a mother’s womb, naked you will depart (Job 1:21). Tony Evans interpretation of Luke 16:9 is spot on! He said, “Jesus emphasizes the importance of people. We must see that people are highly valued in God’s economy. God measures our effect on people not by how many dollars we have in the bank, but by how we have bettered the lives of others and influenced them for good.” He also said, “When we stand before Christ, He will review our life from salvation to death. We will see how responsibly we used the time, talents, and treasures God gave us, and we will see the quality of our stewardship for Him. We will see the impact we had on other people and how much we invested in others for eternity.” Therefore, Invest in what truly matters; it’s not about us, it’s about preparing the ones that’s coming behind us!
