It is being sounded from every station and rooftop. The dollar is slipping. Foreclosures abound and gas prices are soaring. Few are those who are not feeling the pinch. The president will try to reassure everyone this morning while gold hits an all-time high. What a way to begin the morning.
So I thought it might be helpful to hear from a higher source than television pundits.
"The silver is mine and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Hosts." Haggai 2:8
God takes a definite interest in the affairs of men and reminds us of the illusion that we are in control. If we were, things wouldn’t turn south of us so often. We just think we are in control.
"God is able to make all grace abound to you so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8
We may not be able to live in the luxury we are accustomed to experiencing but by no means are we incapable of doing the good works God asks of us. God assures us that if we are faithful in doing his good work, he will be faithful in providing the resources physical and spiritual to do so.
So take the news with a grain of salt. Adjust your lifestyle and focus more on those things close to home. And keep doing the good thing. The Great Economist knows what is going on.
