Be Aware of Where You Invest Yourself

 Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pears to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. – Matthew 7:6

 Wisdom is more than knowing what to say but it is knowing when and to whom it is to be said. Unfortunately there are some people who don’t know when to stop casting their pearls of wisdom before those who don’t really care.

Wisdom is also knowing how to use your resources in a way which produces the most benefit. Studies have shown that most people who win large amounts of money in the lottery wind up in  a few years right back where they came from, and sometimes worse.

Why is that? Because when given a chance at wealth they wind up becoming victims to dogs and pigs.

That happens so often to us in life. As we move from childhood into adolescence we are in essence given a winning lottery ticket. At that point most of us have another 60+ years ahead of us to use the resources handed to us at that point in life.

Some are saying, “What resources? I wasn’t given anything when I was young.” Oh, but yes you were given something. God has given you a sacred trust. You were given a mind. Your mind has the power to imagine and to dream. Your mind can develop plans which have the potential to make you as rich as your wildest dreams.

But, what happens to most of us? We get sidetracked. There are dogs of life which appeal to us to give them that sacred trust and they will give you multiple returns in pleasure and worldly wealth. Then there are those indulgences which one by one trample on the pearls of our youth.

I challenge you, wherever you are in your life, and whatever you have left of your treasured trust, to submit it to God and trust his wisdom to guide you. He will lead you to invest your treasure in worthy projects which will produce the promised rewards of lasting peace and happiness in this life and in the life to come.

 Prayer: Lord, grant me the grace of wisdom so that I will invest my treasure in things which will produce an eternal reward. Amen.
