With social security coming to an end a little sooner than expected, how do you think Christians should view retirement? I have one friend who decided not to save toward retirement. He said it isn’t biblical and will just work through old age. In doing so it opens him up to do more good with his money but I wonder how that balances with the concept of stewardship.
On one extreme you have people who work so hard to prepare themselves for retirement that they are basically working themselves out of needing to depend on God. On the other side you have people who do nothing and then might be a burden on their family. Where do you find the balance?
