If you heard the word “Amazon” in 1990, you probably thought about the rain forest or the river. Perhaps that same year environmentalist’s reported how the destruction of the Amazon rainforest was leading to the destruction of the earth.
Today when you hear the word Amazon you think of the e-commerce giant and shopping online. Jeff Bezos started Amazon in his garage that year.
As of Monday, Jeff is the richest person in the world and the richest in history with a net worth of $1.4 Billion.
Investing $1000 in Amazon 10 years ago you would gain $12,398 today, with shares going for over $1250 each.
Here are some other investment and returns.
The greatest investment is in eternal and spiritual things. Jesus said in Matt 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
