[You have] an inheritance that can
never perish, spoil or fade.
—1 Peter 1:4
According to AARP research, forty-nine percent of Americans cite running out of money as their chief retirement concern.
Planning for retirement is a good idea. Planning for beyond-retirement is an even better idea.
In Revelation, John jots a few lines about what you can expect in your beyond-retirement home: “There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain” (Rv 21:4). And Jesus said it will be a place where thieves won’t steal your stuff (Mt 6:20). You’ll never lock your door, never be short of funds, never shed a tear, never visit the sick, never attend a funeral, never go to the emergency room or have a prescription filled.
Peter says that God has already funded your inheritance and that it will never come up short.
Stash it where you can’t lose it.
