THE WISE INVESTOR

 

Everyone has money to invest.

Children and teenagers invest their money in candy, ice cream, baseball cards, gum, video games, bicycles, cars etc.

Adults have been known to invest in food housing, clothing, medical expenses, televisions, computers, vacations, and a host of other things.

Based on 1 Timothy 6:6-10 and 10-17, we want to talk about being a wise investor of the wealth that God has given.
