“What is one thing a Christian should keep in mind while thinking about/planning for retirement?”
Here was my response:
“That there’s no mention of retirement in the Bible — at least not the 'quit work and enjoy the good life' sort of retirement. From a biblical standpoint, you simply move from one thing (work, a career) to another (serving for a non-profit, sharing your experience with those who can benefit from it). So 'retirement' is not a vacation, simply a change of what you do during your 'working' hours.”
This response may come across as funny to some of you since I write so much about retirement. But if you read closely, I don't plan to save up a ton of money so I can do nothing/only relax. I plan to keep working as long as I can and, in particular, I hope some of that "work" can be time volunteering to help others.
What do you think of my answer?
