Making the Best Investment

Steven Laman

READ : Proverbs 2:1-11

It is obvious that people are obsessed with getting rich. Every business day the floor of the New York Stock Exchange erupts like a mad house with brokers buying and selling. You don’t even have to leave home to get into the action. On-line trading has become a favorite pastime of many. Companies are eager to help you make the trade. All you have to do is sign on and watch your money grow.

There is always some risk in playing the market-it can crash. But there is an investment that will never go belly up. By devoting time to God’s Word, we can gain wisdom and understanding that we cannot lose. Reading the Scripture daily, we will be amazed how our lives begin to grow as we gain direction for living, understand what is right and fair, and learn how to be honest and without blame before the Lord.

Come on, let’s invest some time in the Bible this month. Together we will search the pages of God’s Word and discover something more valuable than stocks or bonds. It might not make us billionaires, but it will make our souls rich and bring us closer to our heavenly Father.


Heavenly Father, as we search through your Word this month, may we find the riches you want us to discover. Amen.
