    Troubled Times

    October 3, 2008 by Brandy Vencel

    If you’re like me, and you’ve watched your savings grow smaller, and you’ve started to think the safest place to keep your money might be The Money Jar, it just might be time to remember that money isn’t everything. It is one thing, certainly, and a helpful tool, to be sure. But folks have often lived with little of it and managed to survive.

    There are some things that every Christian should be pursuing in these troubled times, and it isn’t money. The Powers That Be tell us that billions of dollars are what it’s going to take to bring about stability. And yet money can never bring about stability. First pursue the things that are the source of stability and all else will follow.

    Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
    And the strength of salvation;
    The fear of the LORD is His treasure.
    Isaiah 33:6
