Is it possible that a book which is thousands of years old has insights that can guide investment decisions today? Respected financial advisor Ron Blue says yes.
In a post titled What the Bible Can Teach You About Investing Today , blogger Jeff Mackey writes that Blue, founder and managing director of Kingdom Advisors, says “the old proverbs found in the Bible hold the keys to today’s investment success.”
For example, one important investing principle—diversify your portfolio—is found in Ecclesiastes 11:2: “Divide your portion to seven, or even eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth.”
Mackey offers five of Blue’s investing principles and their biblical bases, they asks, “Do you believe the Bible can help your investing success?”
