Long term investing

Some people do short term, or medium or long term investing.  But the bible speaks of really long term investing; investing with a payout thousands of years out:

“Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”  Luke 14:12-14

The trick to this investing is you have to actually believe there is going to be a real second life.  Most people don’t.  Most Christians view heaven or the afterlife in fairytale terms.
