Where do we invest in this economy?: A experienced stock market investor just told me, “When I buy into the stock market, I no longer feel as if I’m making a well researched investment; instead, it’s more like a well researched bet. World economies and the market are just so uncertain and volatile.” Well, Ecclesiastes 11:2 wisely counsels us to “Divide your portion to 7 or even 8, because you do not know what misfortune will occur upon the earth.” So, please diversify your investments . . .
Long Johns Packed: Bev and I are headed out to Colorado Springs—with 11 inches of snow on the ground—for our second annual Compass Retreat. It will be just a little different weather from the high 80s of Florida. Who chose the Colorado Springs location at this time of year anyhow? Oh, yes, it was me!
Please pray that our team of about 60, from as far away as India and Latin America, will have a terrific time together as we seek to grow closer to Christ and each other and hear His direction for Compass.
Your Money Counts going digital: You can now get the book Your Money Counts for your Kindle, and we’re beginning to work on getting it ipad and Android tablet ready.
Eternity: The death of Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, once again brought eternity into sharp focus for me. I’m among the many who admire Apple and the amazing advancements in technology that Mr. Jobs orchestrated. This ministry and my family have personally benefited greatly from his contributions to our electronic lives. But as soon as I learned of his passing, my first thought wasn’t about his accomplishments, it was about his eternal destiny. I can only pray that Steve Jobs knows Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Jesus told us with unmistakable clarity, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”
May those of us who know Jesus, be grateful that we are children of God. And may we be committed to pray for and tell those who don’t yet know Him about the good news of the Savior.
Warmly in Christ,
