Investment or Inheritance

Would you invest in a government bond that you knew you wouldn’t live to cash in?  The United Kingdom (England) is considering issuing a government bond that would mature in 100 years.  Does that sound like an investment for you or an investment for your grandchildren?  The Bible teaches in Proverbs 13:22 that “a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”  An investor who invests in a 100 year bond looks like a good man as defined in Proverbs 13:22.

    I agree that leaving an inheritance for your grandchildren and great grandchildren is a noble thing to do. I would buy a 100 year bond and make sure that my grandchildren or greatgrandchildren knew that it was for them. The Bible is full of advice on financial stewardship, we are only using what is given to us by God. It is not ours, but His and we have an obligation to be responsible with it.

    What an amazing plan! As I try to “chase” down my forefathers, I realize the story of life goes on and on. There are many treasures, or I consider treasures, that I want to leave behind to my children and grandchildren. The 100 year bond would be quite a gift for future generations. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful gift of love?

    Invest in your children and grandchildren; not a govt. Time and making memories is a great investment. Teaching money sense is a great gift to complement any inheritance.
