Planting Seeds and Throwing Rocks

how is the economy doing, really?

I was at Sam’s yesterday buying some supplies for church and it was PACKED.  I heard a comment from an older gentleman about a year ago that this recession is NOTHING like the Great Depression because the only lines he sees nowadays are the ones at restaurants or other retail stores – NOT the lines for free soup.  I watched as people bought HUGE TVs – ones that cost a LOT of money (like they could have bought a car for a college student instead) and other jumbo items.  The thought occurred to me that if you still have a job, the economy isn’t so bad.  I mean gas isn’t too high, grocery shopping can be tightened a bit…but not too bad.  BUT if a small business goes down and its 4 employees are laid off…the economy is really bad.

My suggestion:  before you lose your job or hit a bump in the road INVEST – not so much in funds but in relationships.  The #1 cause of homelessness or poverty is lack of a relational network.
