Super Dad and I have been investing for our future long enough to know, you never put all your eggs in one basket. Do not invest your entire nest egg in one stock. Diversify by populating your portfolio into a variety of asset classes with different degrees of correlation. If the market jumps up or down, your investments aren’t all affected in the same way. In the long run, you should be ahead of the financial gain.
There is a time in life, however, it is good to have all your eggs in one basket.
Jesus came into our world, as a human, to experience temptation of sin, just as we do, and gave us a way out of our humanly sin-nature. He died for our sins, redeeming us with God, allowing us to be born again with new life, forgiveness, and hope.
Jesus lived as an example of how to remain obedient with temptations of this world and how to rely on him, and only him. As we struggle to be a good mom, but lose our temper and yell or hit our children because of our inability to stay calm. When we find ourselves bored in our relationship and stray for comfort, instead of fixing the problem and saving the commitment. When finances aren’t covering our expenses and we continue to increase the balance on credit cards, instead of landing on our knees and asking how to change our desires. When we feel inadequate and let the ruminating negative thoughts circle in our head, instead of looking for the truth of who we are in Jesus.
He gave his life for you. He gave his life for me. Who else has done that?
Put everything into your relationship with Jesus. Surrender your life, your children, your spouse, your job, your home, your finances, your fear, your anxiety onto the shoulders of the only man that can take the weight! Then accept the peace, joy, hope, and redemption of his grace forever.
Put all your burdens into the basket and leave it at the cross this Sunday!
