God will do more "through you" than He will just do "for" you. When we get moving...so does God. Also, when we steward what we have well, we have less of a need for miracles. Miracles should not be needed for what we put ourselves into because of a lack of wisdom/stewardship...miracles should be for what we truly cannot control.
Trading seems fun, exciting, exhilarating, etc. so it has a lot of draw to it. And many people won't dig deeper than the euphoric emotion that they feel. However, trading is MUCH harder than investing. And much of the industry is bent towards getting you to trade rather than invest.
