Is your financial professional qualified?

In the preparation of selecting specific investments for your portfolios, it is advisable to seek the help of a professional.  Your choice of an investment professional is critical.

Ask yourself the following question: Is my financial professional qualified? Before hiring a financial professional, you should first establish that the financial professional is a Christian, and that he or she operates as a Christian. The advice you receive from a Christian professional is different than the advice you will receive from a non-Christian. Simply put, Christians should not turn to non-Christians for advice. Psalms 1:1 tells us “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” I’m not saying that the Christian’s advice is better than the world’s advice, but the world’s paradigms do not line up with the truths of God’s Word. The secular financial professional cannot deliver peace of mind, and they typically concentrate on building wealth, while Christian Financial professionals emphasize helping clients find ways to use their wealth effectively to get more out of life and establishing the Kingdom of God. God’s Holy principles of stewardship transcend time and are unchanging. Likewise, the Christian financial professional’s advice is unchanging if it is based on scripture. Most everything Christians complain about financially is only a temporary position. The secular view is wrong because it takes a temporary view. All Christians should have an eternal perspective. We are to see the world through God’s eye, viewpoints and perspectives. A Godly perspective never changes; it always remains the same.
