One item caught me attention. The Missouri legislature is praying over the budget crisis.
What an idea! Why not? I don't think that in and of ourselves we have the wisdom or discipline to solve the problem. We have tremendous problems in this country and in others as well. There are budget shortfalls everywhere.
- at the state level
- for many cities
- for most schools
- for Social Security
- for Medicare/Medicaid
- for pensions
- for personal and family finances
- for the new health care that was just passed
- Iceland, Greece, Ireland, Portugal are having major financial problems
- we're talking about new taxes and controls that will stunt economic growth
God's people should humbly ask God for the wisdom and discipline to solve these serious problems.
Let's pray. Alone, in families, as churches, as states, and as a nation. (Whichever nation you are part of)
Otherwise, there may be disaster looming.
