Friday. Yes I watched the debate last night. Did you? Learning and gaining insight and wisdom should be our job right now. I am watching the economy wavering thinking in my 55 years on earth I have never seen anything like this. I don't think my kids understand how dangerous it is right now. I am not one to panic but rather to gather what I need and make careful decisions with prayer on where to go and what to do. Our future depends on American Airlines for Terry and for me just folks that can still buy artwork.

When I think of the parable of the talents from the bible it gives way for reflection. A man calls his servants together in a meeting. He hands each of them some money wanting to see how they will handle the money. One servant received five Talents, another received two Talents and one received only one talent. The story tells of how the servant with five talents invested them wisely and doubled his amount. The same with the servant that received two talents. But the servant with one talent hid his money under his mattress. When the man returned to see how the servants had done with the money he have given them, he was thrilled with the two that invested and doubled their money, but was harsh with the servant that did nothing.

God wants us to be wise with our money. God wants us to be wise with our TALENTS or GIFTS as well. Note the turn on words. God has given us everything we need in life. We tend to want more, but we have what we need. We need to invest time in our gifts and talents and use them for the glory of the Lord. Wealth is more than money... great wealth is love, peace and joy. I find dealing with money, bills etc is not any of these. God wants us to wisely invest our money and our gifts.

Be diligent during these time. Hard work is the best way to provide for your needs and share what you have with others.


"For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him." Matthew 25:29

That is so true. I love the parallel between the parable of the talents and the political cycle.
