The Retirement Gamble

"There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labor.  This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God." Ecclesiastes 2:24     

     Over the years I have learned, one of the key lessons to success is, to begin with, the end in mind.  The plan of salvation is one such lesson that teaches this principle my father, Jacob taught me.  "That's one of the many reasons I believe in Yahweh," he told me. The plan of salvation was an example of this principle.
     Today I find many people, Christians included, forgoing this principle, leaving their financial well-being in the hands of institutions and companies, they hope, will do right by them.  This is risky. We are advised to study the habits of the ant (Proverbs 6:6) and become wise.  The ant works unselfishly employing teamwork to survive as they build and work in the colony.  These insects use their instincts to survive and prepare for the future.
     Many people's lives today revolve around money and their plans for the future is not as it appears to be.  In my thirties, I was blessed to envision the problems that a nation and the world at large would face if the people didn't prepare.  They followed my advice then and I hope you will do the same today as I see a storm brewing in the horizon for the unprepared.
     There has been a change in the pension plans that many know about but few understand.  I wish to turn your attention to it before it is too late.  This PBS special is very informative and I implore you not only watch it but share it with your family and friends.  Your Retirement is not to be gambled with, however, many are taking it lightly.
