The pastor today in church was talking about Pastor Rick Warren stated that, “Christians are like tea bags, you don’t know how they will react until they are are placed in hot water.” That was kind of funny. Then another comment he made was about G. K…stating that everyone in a small town deveryone knew the color of your underwear when it was hanging out. Gosh, you don’t have to be in a small town, one of our neighbors hangs her very large white underwear out in a big long row. Years go and some people still wear bloomers. You can’t help but wonder, “Why?” I say, Let’s hanger people’s underwear outside.” What’s the truth, the real truth?
Then we have these people who raise money “to provide services” which is to line their pockets while others are suffering. Why don’t they just put the correct wording down? Some people raise money for their large salaries and savings, while many are suffering. Look at the big salaries of who they are married to in our community. Look at your neighbors. How many houses do they own, cars, campers? Shepherds need to open people’s eyes to what is really happening in communities, cities, and towns across the United States. Cause marketing can be deceiving, if you don’t ask questions.
Last night they were talking about “debt” in the United States.
14 million people are in debt
1 in 7 people are on food stamps
Poverty in children has increased, as it has in their families. Did you know that children, lots and lots of children are dying every day in third world countries from no food?
Everyone needs to engage in finances: both the husband and the wife.
The debt dig out…
There’s lots are applying for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.
In fact, 1.5 million people have filed for bankrucy.
The average American has $15,000.00 in credit card debt.
They estimate that there are those who have stop looking for a job, possibly another 25 million. Add that to the 1.4 million already unemployed.
It’s not just the undereducated, it is the educated that are having a hard time finding a job. Some have to accept a low paying job to survive, going against how they were educated. Some have gone back to pick up other credits and additional training to obtain another job. There are still demand jobs out there, some job specific in the health care industry. One needs to look at the industries in their cities.
I think things will be get a lot worse before they get better.
We are citizens need to be prepared for the bad times…Save money for those emergency situations. (64% of Americans don’t have 1,000.00 for an emergency let alone their burial expenses)
Who is your back up? Who can you get help from? If it is a family member or a friend, be sure to pay them back right away. Be greatful, be thankful.
