Finances are only one part of the many resources Christ followers are to exercise stewardship. Budgeting, saving, debt management, donations, philanthropy -ie. tithing, are all part of the Christian's obligation to maintain a positive witness and productive life. Notice, I did not say that if you don't you will not be a good enough Christian.

Retirement is not a biblical concept.
I'm not telling you not to plan for your future, plan as if you'll have a debilitating injury and cannot earn a living, that would be wise.

When God calls and the money is there let your faith that he is always with you to the end be larger than your life in this world.
---Pharisee on 5/21/08

Donna- seems that the verses are taken out of context.
As Christians we should be more enlightened about how to earn a living. No sin with it rather we expand His kingodom and set a good example for others.

Whatever we have to give to God- it is God's. Does not contradict with having to invest our funds in a wise and discerning ways.

Jesus meant we should do good things whenever we have opportunity and give for His works(from what we earn)and not to leave our hearts set on wealth.
---Ephre3798 on 5/30/07

We as Christians should not be investing our money in stocks and bonds, etc., Why? Because that's not what God said to do. "Don't store up treasures on earth where moth and rust destroy." The way you manage your money is: You do it God's way. Give tithes and offerings, "Test me now in this says the Lord, and see if I will pour out a blessing to you." Give and it SHALL be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, runneth over."

Yes, like oil and gas production, that you drive your car and heat your house with.
Like John Deere, machinery that most every farmer of our nation's food supply uses....

To invest your money in worldly things is sinful. When you invest your money in most stocks you are providing revenue for many sinful things.

It is especially important for young people to find jobs where they will have a retirement program when they are older. Social security probably won't be around in a few years and you can't live on it anyway. Buyings stocks is like gambling.

As a Christian, we are to be wise stewards with God's money. Squandering every dime and wondering why we're sitting on a heap of bills is not God's plan. Then desperately seeking a mate or someone to relieve us of our money troubles is not wise. How silly, not to invest in stocks or bonds, or set some aside for retirement. Good looks will not feed the family. That's one paycheck away from disaster.

My husband I have the faith that God will provide for us no matter what. He always has and he always will. If you are giving your time, talents, tithes and offerings regularly you won't have time to think about investing in this world.
