Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
The global economy - well, sometimes it's like a crazy roller coaster. A bit of bad economic data spooks the markets and wipes trillions from their value. Crazy.
"The global economic crisis", boy, I wish I had a dollar for every time I've heard that term recently. A wise, old friend of mine runs the line that the stock market is driven by fear and greed. Two sides of the one coin.
And it's true, the more we put our faith in money and assets, the more we hunger after them. That's where greed comes from. And when it all goes pear shaped - the more we've put our faith in money and assets - the more it rocks us to the core. That's the fear side of the coin.
The economy will wax and wane. That's life. But greed and fear - well they're nothing new. Jesus knew it - He said - where your treasure is - there your heart will also be.
Let me ask you this - where's your treasure…and how's your heart?
