I can smell it. It’s like toast or steak or brownies. It doesn’t just draw our desire, it creates desire. Deep drops in the stock market make many people salivate. They know it will rebound. They are sitting on cash. By year’s end their pile could ride the recovery to riches.
For such people I have a word from God. The word is: Don’t desire to be rich. It will kill you. And in a world like ours many will probably perish with you.
Read the whole thing. This is also a good time to pray for those in authority. They have an important duty to discharge before God. And we should pray for the economy, while actively seeking the well-being of others.
