Accessibility for All
With the help of faith friends from our gathering of Faith Driven Investors, we’ve begun drafting a set of Unifying Principles. Our hope is that we can begin to come together under these thoughts and ideas to work toward a more full vision of what it means to let our faith drive our investments.
If you have thoughts, questions, concerns, things you’d change or add, please let us know! We’re relying on you, our community, to make this resource the best it can be.
The Faith Driven Investor is for everyone. From the widow and her mite to the rich young ruler. The size and scope of your investment portfolio is irrelevant—we’re here to see how much good we can do with what we have.
We aspire that investment vehicles which include Spiritual Integration will be accessible for all investors. While SEC rules make this hard across all asset classes, it’s a worthy objective over time. We hope to be conscious and transparent with investors who have different capacities. The appropriate ‘pacing’ of different investors into novel investment vehicles may differ, but our objective is that all investors will be able to participate as products and supporting data becomes available.
Because we know what God can do with just a handful of fish and a few loaves of bread, we eagerly invite everyone to the table. You can be a part of this discussion. You don’t have to wait until you have a certain level of portfolio or until you have a few extra zero’s in your bank account. This movement isn’t about the numbers. It’s about the people involved.
So, don’t hesitate to jump in. You’re welcome here. There’s always a seat at this table for anyone who is interested in finding out how God can use the things He has given us as we give them back to Him.
Using Scripture as Our Guide
Luke 21:1-4 As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
Luke 16:10 He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much.
Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Proverbs 19:2 Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who hurries his footsteps errs.
1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
