LIFE IS MEANT TO BE INVESTED
See Matthew 25:14-29.
“Jesus said to them, “The time has come for the Son of Man to receive his glory. I tell you the truth, a grain of wheat must fall to the ground and die to make many seeds. But if it never dies, it remains only a single seed.” John 12:23-24 NCV
THREE THINGS WE CAN INVEST TO BE COURAGEOUS
1) WE CAN INVEST OUR HEARTS
“… if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:3 NLT
2) WE CAN INVEST OUR TALENTS
“He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’” Matthew 25:22-23 NKJV
3) WE CAN INVEST OUR TREASURE
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21 NKJV
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NKJV
