Greetings in the Lord !

Welcome to the Bible Reading Adventure! During your reading of 1st Chronicles, Chapter 4, did you reflect on the “Prayer of Jabez” (verse 10)? A few years back, a book with the title, The Prayer of Jabez, became a best seller and swept the nation with a powerful message based on that single verse. It is true, God’s word does not return empty (Isaiah 55:11). This month, the adventure continues with the Book of 2nd Chronicles. May the month of May be a time of “blessings indeed” and your “territory enlarged” as you pursue God’s word.

Thoughts for Sharing

Jesus said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” (John 14:6) To help me make practical application of this verse, I’ve associated a word for each letter of the words WAY, TRUTH and LIFE. In the past couple of months, I’ve shared that the letters W, A and Y stands for “Worship” God, “Abide” in Christ, and “Yield” to the Holy Spirit.” The word TRUTH, I would propose (among other interpretations) can be an important “must have” component for any investment portfolio. Before sharing what T-R-U-T-H stands for, I have to make two necessary disclaimers: 1) “Past performance is no indicator of future of results.” and 2) “You should always consult a professional advisor before making any investment decision.” With that understanding, here are the market sectors that should be part of the portfolio: Technology, REIT’s (Real Estate Investment Trusts), Utilities, Telecommunications and Healthcare. Of course there are different means to invest in these sectors and perhaps we can explore a little more next time. Hope you enjoyed this bit of TRUTH in investing. Scripture is very practical. Let me know what you think.
