God wants us to invest wisely in our spiritual future as well. Through the ups and downs of life's circumstances we should continually invest in a "spiritual account": our character. The apostle Peter tells us to be diligent about character development (2 Peter 1:5-11). After we trust in Christ for salvation, we are to invest these qualities into our character; faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.

The future returns on our investment in character will be godliness, fruitfulness in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, assurance of our calling, and victory over sin! Now is the time to invest in eternity.
