The news has been bad lately — and there is seemingly little hope in sight.
The global economy is bad, there is a credit crisis, the US automotive industry is in trouble, unemployment is increasing, many of those with jobs are concerned, and a turnaround seems a long ways off.
But in the big picture, this has happened before and will happen again.
Jesus puts it into a proper perspective for us:
“I tell you, do not worry about your life,
what you will eat; or
about your body, what you will wear.
Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given
to you as well.”
