Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (1 Tim. 6:17-18)

7 Investments that place you in the flow of God's wealth

The main premise of my blog and the big idea behind Rich Christian, Poor Christian is this - according to God's Word, I believe we as Christians can make 7 important investments that place us in the flow of God's blessings and wealth. Just as Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad taught him to spend most of his time, energy, and money in the Business and Investment quadrants, I believe we can be Rich Christians by making important daily spiritual investments.

For a better explanation of what I'm talking about, check out Robert's video below on the Cash Flow Quadrant:

OK, so just as Robert's rich dad had him focus on the business and investments quadrants, I believe as Christians that we need to "hang out" in the Spiritual Investment quadrant, making the following investments:
  1. Invest in your relationship with God (Daily quiet time).
  2. Invest in the Kingdom (Tithing, giving to the poor, sacrificial giving)
  3. Invest in relationships with others (spouse, family, mentors, coaches, friends).
  4. Invest in yourself with focused thinking.
  5. Invest in financial planning and education.
  6. Invest time in what really counts (productivity).
  7. Invest your energy in winning!

I'll be spending more time on each of these 7 investments in the days ahead.
