What Does The Bible Say About Retirement

You’ve probably heard that people are living longer, but you might not know why. The truth is that we’re living longer because of improvements in health and medicine, but also because people simply want to enjoy life more at a later stage in their lives. In fact, most people plan to work part-time or full-time during retirement. So how do you plan for retirement? What does the Bible say about it? You’ll be surprised at how much financial planning comes down to faith—and not just any type of faith!

I would have loved to do it, but I just couldn’t afford to.

We all have different priorities, needs and resources. We also have different abilities, dreams and goals. We all have different values.

So my decision not to retire was based on a whole host of factors that couldn’t be summed up in one simple sentence. But let me tell you this: I would have loved to do it!

But it just wasn’t possible for me at the time.

“My retirement will be really relaxed and peaceful.”

  • You will have more time to spend with family.
  • You will have more time to spend on hobbies.
  • You will have more time to spend on travel.
  • You will have more time to spend on volunteer work or community activities.

“I can’t wait until I can be with kids all the time and take care of them.”

One of the benefits of retirement is that you will have more time to spend with your kids. You can help them with their homework and projects, go on family outings together, and help them with their sports and chores.

“I’m really looking forward to retiring because I don’t like my job and it’s time for me to get out.”

Retirement is good. It’s a great thing! Retirement means you can rest and enjoy yourself and spend time with your family. You get paid for working all those years, so it’s only fair that you get to enjoy yourself when you’re ready to retire.

However, not everyone enjoys their job (I don’t know anyone who loves their job) so they may be looking forward to retirement simply because they don’t like their job and want out of it as soon as possible. In this case, it’s important that they have a plan in place for what they will do once they retire.

“I can’t wait until I retire so I can do whatever I want.”

But what does retirement mean? The word “retirement” comes from the French word meaning “to retreat.” To retire is to withdraw from something, and that’s exactly what you should do in your retirement. You shouldn’t continue doing all of the things that you were doing before you retired; rather, you should focus on doing new things—and not just any old thing will do. Think about it: if your job was eating lunch at a desk each day, would that be exciting enough for an entire lifetime? Of course not! As we age, our bodies change and we want more than ever to experience life differently than we did when we were younger (or even middle-aged).

The trick here is not to keep up with the Joneses or try desperately to live longer so as not to waste away those precious years before death strikes one day out of nowhere like lightning from a clear blue sky (which I think only happens if you’re lucky). No! Rather than worrying about how long until death comes knocking on your door like a Jehovah’s Witness at 5 PM every Thursday afternoon (not my favorite time), spend some time thinking about what kinds of activities would make life worth living again now that people don’t expect us around anymore every single day like they used too

“I plan on spending a lot of time on hobbies and sports and travel.”

As you enter into your retirement years, it’s important to remember that the world is still full of adventure and excitement. You can travel the world, learn a new language, or get involved in community activities.

You can go on missions trips to help build houses for those who need them. You can take up painting as a hobby or join a book club. The possibilities are endless!

“I was told that we should save 15% of our income, but it never seemed realistic so we didn’t even try.”

It’s important to start saving early in your career. To be able to retire comfortably, you need to have enough money saved up by the time you reach retirement age.

The Bible says that we should save 15% of our income for retirement and that it is good to set aside more than the bare minimum amount if we can afford it. It takes discipline not to spend all of your money today—you might have some expenses coming up soon! But if you make a habit of putting away a little bit every month, then it won’t feel like such an inconvenience when those expenses come up. You’ll probably be surprised at how quickly those little amounts add up over time!

“We paid off the mortgage!”

Paying off the mortgage early is one of the best things you can do with your money. It’s not just about having a big fat number in your bank account every month, either. Sure, that’s nice and all—but it doesn’t compare to the other benefits of having no mortgage payment. Here are just some of them:

  • You’ll have more savings for retirement
  • You’ll pay less taxes on interest income from investments (more on this later)
  • You’ll be able to invest in better quality properties (more on this later)

There are many versions of retirement, but one thing is certain…

What does the Bible say about retirement? There is no one way of retiring. It is important to have a plan and a budget in place so that you can protect your assets and keep yourself out of financial ruin when you’re no longer working. In order to do this, it’s essential to have a financial plan in place. Once you’re ready for retirement, there are many things that need to be done in preparation for leaving your job behind: selling off any unnecessary items (like extra cars), purchasing new vehicles that suit your needs after retirement (such as an automatic scooter), or even finding out if there are any opportunities for freelance work before becoming fully retired.

It’s important to know that there are many versions of retirement, but one thing is certain: your retirement will not be what you expected it to be. You may think that you’ll spend all your time on hobbies and sports, or travel and adventure, but those things will come in time. You should focus on building a strong foundation for yourself so that when the opportunity presents itself, you’ll know how best utilize it!
