We all need it. Some who are reading this are smart enough to give it. We all need investment advise. Almost everyone has a 401K, or a retirement plan or even a brokerage account that invests in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or cd’s. I know for me, the question in my mind always is am I investing the right way. My goal is to put a little away each month, invest it properly as to get the best return on my money. And then hopefully years later, if I have made the right investments, my savings will have grown into something much bigger.
As I think about relating this to the Lord’s Church, there are so many similarities. We need investment advise in the Church as well. Not necessarily in a monetary way, but a spiritual way. Our goal in the Church is to give of our talents each day, to invest our talents. Our prayer is that whatever our hands find to do, we do it with all of our might. Our prayer is that whatever seeds we plant that our Lord will give the increase. So that years later much fruit may be harvested.
The investment advise that I would like for us to consider today is Proverbs 22:6 –
“Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
At RCOC we are blessed with so many talented and willing volunteers that put in endless hours to plant those seeds.
But today I would like to ask something specific. I would like to ask husband and wife teams to teach more of our kids classes, especially in the the 3rd through 6th grade classes. We need you. Even if your kids are already grown and gone, we need you. Would you consider using your talents for this group of impressionable kids? May God Bless our efforts as we strive to serve Him.
