Can you imagine your best friend suddenly decides to sell everything they own to purchase stock in one company. It’s an up and coming company, the future looks bright and they’re convinced this is a great investment. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” they say. So, they cash out all bank accounts and they sell EVERYTHING! Every penny of everything they have ever owned is going into this one stock.
A move like that goes against all of the standard financial wisdom out there. We tend to practice diversification when it comes to investing. We put a little here and a little there. Diversification is the safety net we all lean on. We don’t go all in on anything because it’s foolish. What would you say, if I told you that Jesus says otherwise? That’s what we dive into as we look at the parables of the hidden treasure and the pearl of great price in Matthew 13.
