Their property held them in chains...chains which shackled their courage and choked their faith and hampered their judgment and throttled their soul...If they stored up their treasure in heaven, they would not now have an enemy and a thief within their own household...They think of themselves as owners, whereas it is they rather who are owned: enslaved as they are to their own property, they are not the masters of their money but its slaves. (Cyprian)
Far too long our country has lived beyond its means. Debt has become a way of life. We have abandoned rational thought when it comes to finances as a culture and our households. Our country and many families are on the verge of a financial disaster. Our vision of reality is skewed in the FOG cast by Washington and our own desires.
Recession looms on the horizon. It is time for each of us to put our financial house in order. Then, when the tough times come, we will be prepared for opportunity and to help others.
Upcoming fiscal policy changes in Washington may make it worse for us before better. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is the personal responsibility of each individual. We are accountable to seek the right advice or counsel to manage the tough times ahead. How are you preparing to navigate thru the Financial Fog?
Acts 2:42-47 (NASB) They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.
