Read how we got out of the "Jam".... Retired on Golden Pond

The Thought:  With the current economic status of our nation, all of us are paying closer attention to what we spend and what we do.  Credit use to be easy to get and signing up for a new credit card could be done on the spot right in the store and you immediately found yourself with $10,000 in new credit and you felt safe that you could go buy anything you wanted.

Safe?  I don't think so.  It obviously got to the point with many people they filled up charge cards randomly forgetting they had to pay them off.  Even then, just paying the minimum was sometimes hard.  Unexpectedly came the crises of the economic downfall, the slump in the market and the near death of the real estate market.   Many found themselves in a crisis situation of being employed. Feeding the family took precedence over paying those credit card bills.

Having good credit in a bad economy is tough and to even buy a house today the standards are the highest they have ever been.  For a while you saw commercials on every channel about repairing your credit, but credit repair is not something that can be easily bought.  Credit repair is something that has to be worked on.  My now adult kids fully understand why I was so overbearing about keeping your credit clean and tidy.  It is one thing pretty darn essential to making it through this journey here on earth if you live in a civilized area.

How does this apply to your life?  Are you living a credible life?  You can't buy a new credible life, it is something you have to work on, day by day. Sometimes you can find credibility hanging out with 'credible friends'....but eventually you face God with your life as it is.  Your service, your gifts, your giving and your words and actions all create your credibility as a Christian.   As a believer you represent Him.  His reputation is connected to us and it is our job to live our lives honorably to represent Him credibly to others.  Your testimony is your life.


"Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation."  1 Peter 2:12
