The sky is falling! Do you remember that fairy tale about chicken little? As in most cases, this silly children's tale has real life application. With the bad condition of the economy in our country alot of people are struggling financially. People have had to go through difficult phases including job loss, lifestyle adjustments, and some have even lost homes and retirement savings. These are all very bad circumstances. However, if you will direct your gaze upward for just a moment, you will realize that the sky is still right where it is supposed to be.
Romans 15:4 says that "...we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." As Christians we must understand that our hope is not in the economy. Neither is our hope found in political leaders, society, celebrities, or pop-culture. Our hope is in Jesus Christ! The sky is not falling. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and you will see that the sky is right where it is supposed to be.
