Whoever loves money never has enough;
whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.
This too is meaningless.

Ecclesiastes 5:10

“I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings… No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Luke 16:9,13

Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

1 Timothy 6:9-10

In the stock market and related securities exchanges, one of the tools that can be used to make trades is borrowed money. Rather than being called a loan, this borrowed capital is referred to as leverage. The implication in the phrase reveals something about the strategy: there’s some advantage to using someone else’s assets to make a purchase. Like the mechanical advantage of pushing against a weight against a fulcrum, borrowed assets can take a small amount of effort make the actions have a much greater effect!

What do we have in this world ultimately? What exactly do we cash in at the end of it all? Only the spiritual things are eternal. The pursuit of the material then, is not for the furtherance of material prosperity but to buy people out of Spiritual debt and into freedom. We only have what God has leant us to make our investments.

Where did you invest your leverage today?
