Lesson: Wisdom in the Economy [Pt 2]
Prv 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Prv 14:12,16:25 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Every solution man comes up with, to solve the problems he is faced with, is one where God, and His Word, is totally ignored.] Man wants to prove how smart he is. God, in turn shows him how foolish he is.
Psa 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
The Economy – The Problems
People are losing their jobs, which translates in to them facing the loss of their houses, and cars.
When the people lose their jobs, they can't purchase things that they might want, meaning the demand for the products being produced by the people that are still working drops, and soon their jobs are going to disappear. [THIS IS KNOWN AS THE DOMINO EFFECT.]
People's wages are being cut, which is the only way, a lot of companies can stay in business, as demand for their products, drops.
Banks, losing money on bad loans, to people who have lost their jobs, have started limiting the amount of loans they make, which further slows the economy down.
Since it is the economy that runs this nation, and empowers the people, then, when it fails, the people will suffer.
This, in a nutshell, is the crux of the problem.
The Economy – The Cause
Irregardless of your being a Christian, or not, when facing a problem, a wise person will look for the cause of that problem. It does no good to attempt to correct it, if you don't know what caused it in the first place. The reason being, if you don't deal with the cause of it, it is liable to pop up again, even if you find a way to fix it.
Ex. If you have a foul odor in your house, you can always buy something to cover it up. But, wouldn't it be better to find out what is causing that odor, and remove it?? Well the same holds true for fixing the economy. If we don't deal with the cause, the problem will remain.
It is my contention, that the problem we are facing, is the result of our not following God's directions. In other words, our sin.
