For quite some time we hear some say that we are experiencing God's punishment for the way America has turned its ear from God. What if we aren't experiencing God's punishment but his mercy? He knows that continuing down the path of riches and power will keep us on the path of hell. "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for the rich to get to heaven", Jesus said. Our lack of a dependance on God has allowed us to think we can make it on our own. We typically have all we need on any given day. We don't have to go outside every morning and pick manna off the ground. We have a fridge stocked full of goodies. Maybe the economic slow down is a good thing. Maybe, just maybe we as a county will realize we are ulitmately in control of nothing. If not the country, then at least maybe you and I.
