There are all kinds of podcasts that can help you with investment strategies. Do you want long-term investments? Short-term? High-risk or low-risk strategies?

There is one strategy that is guaranteed to pay rewarding long-term dividends and Jesus describes it in Matthew 6:19-21

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Paul's admonition in 1 Corinthians 11-15 compliments the words of Christ.

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved;  yet so as by fire."

The guys remind us that the only things of value in heaven are the treasures that we send ahead.
