Investing has a purpose and it’s important for an investor to be able to support their purpose. As you think about the optimal portfolio, be mindful that the “hope” in your investments may be setting ungodly expectations. Establishing and following a perfectly allocated portfolio may be a risk of “putting hope in your wealth” (1 Timothy 6:17) and not in God who richly provides everything we may need.
- What outcome do you “hope” to accomplish by investing?
- How will you determine if you are successful at reaching your outcomes?
How do you expect to integrate your faith with your investment portfolio? Is this important to you?
