Long Term Investments

January 28, 2022

A friend sent me this —

Usain Bolt won 8 gold medals in 3 Olympics, and he only ran for less that 115 seconds on the track, earning 119 million dollars. That’s economy of effort.

But for those two minutes, he trained for 20 years.

That’s investment. Think long term. Patience pays.

— A friend you and I share wrote this —

Stay clear of silly stories that get dressed up as religion. Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever.

— Wish I’d written that. But our old friend St. Paul did. It’s in our Bibles at 1st Timothy 4:8.

Let’s weave those two together and let them shape our habits.

“That’s investment. Think long term.”
