Surviving the Financial Crisis – Wealth Building

So, I’m watching The Duchess the other night. Don’t gag, guys. Chick flicks are a way to your woman’s heart. And don’t worry. I’m not going to spoil the ending for you. But the movie opens with the Duke staring out a window at some children playing. Later in the movie, after much has happened, he’s standing in the same place, looking out the same window, watching children play. And after gazing for a few moments, he utters a cry from the heart, a statement something like this: “Oh, to have the freedom to experience that much joy.” And, with the weight of the world and the consequences of the choices he has made on his shoulders, he slowly turns from the window, turns his back to the camera, and drags his body and his load down the hall. Rich enough to have everything he wanted; impoverished, having nothing he needed.
Not to be too heavy here, but this is not the life God intends for you. Is there a way to achieve clarity on what to invest in to prevent a forlorn looking back 10, 15, 20, 30 years down the road? What could life be like if we purposed to be free to experience much joy?
We’ll dig into this as we conclude the riveting series on Surviving the Financial Crisis this Sunday at Moland. See ya at 11:00–and come early for some coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and munchies.
If you want to get a jump on where we’re going, check out Matthew 6:19-23.
