Be Informed

August 27, 2009

You should be reading these types of news articles.

81 banks have failed.
My father who is in banking tells me there are many more to come. A New York Times articles estimates 150 by the end of the year.

Understand what is happening. People are talking about recovery as if talking about it will make it happen. Years of living beyond our means has caught up with this country. Maybe that is why Jesus warned against it. Not only can it destroy individuals and families, it can bring countries to their knees.

If we are going to pray maybe we should stop worrying about universal health care and start praying for God’s protection when this all comes crashing down. I try hard not to be doom and gloom. I remember a book from the 90’s that said Saddam Hussein was going to bring the world to its end. I noticed a book this past week that was projecting the leader of Iran. It all sounded so familiar.

I’m not claiming to recognize the end, I am saying our thirst for more as a country, the thirst for more when we don’t have money to pay for it, has finally caught up with us. Our typical response is to push it on and on. Well, we have done that for 20 years and it doesn’t seem we will be able to push it much further.

What will happen?
I don’t know but I am reminded that this world is not our home. It seems that God may be reminding us all.
