I’ve been around a lot of Christians. The nature of my life is that pretty much every single person who has impacted me significantly (positively or negatively) has been a Christian. I am a second-generation pastor’s kid, so I was raised in the church. My best friends are almost all fellow pastor’s kids and the “village” that helped to raise me are all church families. I’m giving you all this to say, I am acutely familiar with the way American Christians behave.
When we hear the word, “investment,” we can frequently think in financial contexts, considering things like money, earnings, profit, loss, interest and portfolios. I’d like to suggest, however, that, “investment” can have more than just a financial application. In thinking about investments, who has invested in you? If you reflect on your life, did you have some teachers who have made deposits in your growth and development? Have you had coaches who invested to make you a better player or competitor?
