invest in what you use

When it comes to investing your money, Warren Buffet offers a basic rule of thumb: invest in what you use.  In other words, invest in things you understand and if you don’t, make sure to get professional help from companies like SoFi so that you understand.  Invest in items that you are familiar with.  The trouble comes when we invest our money in businesses or funds that we don’t understand.  We get enticed by the possibility of big return or get swept up in the buzz surrounding a company or a market.

Take Buffet’s principle and think about how it applies to stewardship.

Are we investing in what we use?  If God has made a difference in your life … if God has enabled you to overcome challenges … if God has allowed you to have peace in the midst of trials … if God’s Word has provided you guidance and purpose … are you investing in what you use?
