Todays Econamy

By Sherly Isaac

Today economy is in bad shape. Stock markets have plunged as never before. My knowledge in this field is very much limited. But I understand from TV news that if a person has more than $100,000 deposited in bank it could be lost.

I remember when I was very young, one day a person coming to our home informing my parents that their money deposited in a kind of bank has been lost due to bankruptcy and that they expect to recover only a very small amount of that money. He and my parents had discussion for a long time but of no avail. My parents' hard earned money was gone and it devastated them. They were completely shocked. Even after many years they regret why they put their money in that bank!

But it was not the end of the world for my parents. They provided for us best of the land to eat, best to wear, best place to live and gave us best education.

It is true that when our entire belongings are lost it breaks our heart. It is devastating when we lose our treasures. But these worldly treasures are so unpredictable that you cannot trust on it. Today you may have everything but tomorrow it may be gone. That is the reason why Jesus spoke in Mat 6:19-21, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

A treasure laid up in heaven can only last forever. For others there is no guarantee. Further Jesus said in Mat 6:24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

I have seen people running after money, always thinking about money and aiming how to make more and more money. They work hard; they do day jobs, night jobs and even 2-3 jobs and yet in spite of their efforts in dreaming after money, they remain far from their goal, more worried... But Jesus said in Mat 6:32-33, "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

When we seek God first and give our days in His mighty hands, He takes care of our days. He takes care of our provisions. Today probably many of you may be seeing very tough situation in your life where your hard earned money is being lost. But my friend, it is not the end of the world for you. If you put your trust in Jesus, He will bring you out of your tough situation and He will bless you beyond your imagination and beyond your expectations.

Trust on Him, He will never fail you.
