It is no secret that our world is in challenge, our nation’s economy is in limbo, and our uncertainty continues in this life. We really have two volitional choices today: Choose to worry or choose to replace worry with the many things we all have to be thankful for. Having money or the lack of money does not define a person, contrary to the world’s definition! It is a compartment of life that we USE to function, just like gasoline or groceries or highways.
Unfortunately, the “system” has used it as a guage to define if you are successful or not. Don’t believe that! It is not a guage; Not in God’s economy! It is easy to believe the media reports because they do a good job dictating how people feel, but I would encourage you to turn off the TV, get a good Bible to study that you can understand, and find comfort, peace, rest, and assurance during turbulent times. Jesus had much to say about money! If you goal at retirement is being able to pay cash for a large home on the intracoastal waterway and being able to pay cash for a nice Mercedes every few years thrown in with a Colarodo vacation, then I can assure you, you are not living this life fulfilled. It is always a hollow win, especially, if Jesus Christ is not involved in your life. Nothing wrong with any of the above goals, it’s just that if you do it all without Jeusus and die, what have you gained? Ask around.
