The newspaper is filled with stories of massive layoffs and foreclosures. Industries that have been bastions of strength for decades are now crumbling. Feature stories on how to beat the recession are rapidly becoming media staples as an increasingly fearful populace searches for hope.

Christians are not recession-proof. We struggle through a faltering economy just like everyone else. Yet we do have an assurance greater than any financial shelter ever devised by man. Read what Jesus has to say on the subject in Luke's Gospel and be encouraged today.

Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

--Luke 12:27-31 (NIV)
