The Uncertainties of Life
1 Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you. 2 But divide your investments among many places for you do not know what risks might lie ahead.
3 When clouds are heavy, the rains come down. Whether a tree falls north or south, it stays where it falls.
4 Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.
5 Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things.
6 Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both. Ecclesiastes 11: 1-6 New Living Translation (NLT)
In this season, you may find yourself with many opportunities. Some may seem risky and uncertain but mull over the above words of the wisest man that ever lived. Take 2018 by its reins, gain financial freedom, invest wisely and take risks. After all, you do not know what will bring you profit.
Is there an idea, plan, talent, skill or special interest that you believe the Lord has given you? This is the year and season to step out in faith, get certified, get licensed, get trained and take those risks !
