The Loonie, compared to the U.S. Dollar, is at its lowest value in thirteen years. The price of oil is dropping like a stone. As a result, in formerly job rich Western Canada, thousands are being laid off. Billions of dollars are being lost in the financial markets of the world. Many are in shock. It is sad to see, in some cases, hard working people, losing their life’s savings. The economic meltdown underlines the futility of trusting in money for security. Matthew, in the New Testament was inspired to warn, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal…” Only in God can we find security. Our Lord Jesus cautioned us all to “… lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. “ That happens by admitting our estrangement from God, making peace with Him, and inviting His Son, Jesus Christ, into our lives.
