Truly, our job in the midst of this economic crisis is not to panic. To pray without ceasing. To love one another. To know that the Lord is near. And to TRUST--that God is still in our midst. We are called to be faithful, not just fiscally successful.
I had my moment of panic today. I'm still paying off student loans based on my stock portfolio, and my ability to do that is severely compromised now.
But I'm preaching on Sunday, and this is the text: Exodus 32:1-14 and Philippians 4. Aaron panicked and gave people what they wanted. Paul reminds us that our primary job in the midst of crisis is not to panic, but to pray.
I'm praying now.
