Three don’ts of investing
1) Don’t invest in what you don’t UNDERSTAND.
Proverbs 24:3-4 (NIV) By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; 4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.
2) Don’t put all your eggs in one BASKET.
Ecclesiastes 11:2 (NLT) But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead.
3) Don’t try to get RICH QUICK.
1 Timothy 6:9-10 (NCV) Those who want to become rich bring temptation to themselves and are caught in a trap. They want many foolish and harmful things that ruin and destroy people.
Proverbs 13:11 (NLT) Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.
