Some happenings in the economy:

U.S. Unemployment hits highest rate in 26 years.  9.5%.  467,000 Americans lost their jobs last month.

The California Controller is now preparing to issue IOU’s.  Hey, look on the bright side, they’re backed by the full faith and credit of the California government. *wink*

The price of oil fell in correlation to the rising job rate.  I’m really not sure if this is good news or bad.  In the least they cancel each other out.

This is difficult to say, but it almost seems like the economy needs to tank in order for us to realize that BIG government, lots of spending, ridiculous energy policies, and higher taxes only harm the economy.

Obviously, since God is intimately involved in His creation, He is therefore engaged in what’s happening to the economy.  I read on interesting take on the economy here.  You can read the article on his blog or catch the summary below:

  1. God intends for this recession to expose hidden sin and so bring us to repentance and cleansing;
  2. He intends to wake us up to the constant and desperate condition of the developing world where there is always and only recession of the worst kind;
  3. He intends to relocate the roots of our joy in his grace rather than in our goods, in his mercy rather than our money, in his worth rather than our wealth;
  4. He intends to advance his saving mission in the world—the spread of the gospel and the growth of his church—precisely at a time when human resources are least able to support it. This is how he guards his glory;
  5. He intends for the church to care for its hurting members and to grow in the gift of love.

This pretty much sums it up for me.

In everything, we proclaim the goodness and kindness of Jesus.  We trust in Your leadership and know everything You do cannot be improved on by another.  Just and true are Your ways.
