Investing in Life

• how you invest your life is formed by your life objectives

• what do we live for?

Areas We Invest In

[slide – bold text in sequence]

• Future

• Children

• Retirement

• Education

• Relationships

• Financial Planning

• Career

• Spirituality & Faith

Common Ground: We Invest in Our Future

• What we want to be determines how we live

• Our life goals dictate our investments

Living for the Need

• These areas are not unimportant

• But they are not the final reality

• At some point, all of these things come to an end

• If our objective is to achieve these things, we can do that successfully

• But it is possible to achieve these objectives and still miss the point of life

Living for the Goal

[slide – bold text]

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul?” - Jesus

Investing Our Lives

Do: Live Carefully

Be: Embrace & Participate in God’s Plan
