Enjoy this bad economy.... lest we forget
But perhaps this bad economy is a good thing. How? Because people are happy to have a job, even if it is one that is short of their dream job. People are grateful to have a home, a car, and to have food on the table. In one way, this economy has helped some to see just how blessed they are with the things they have. While I am not suggesting that we accept mediocrity or not strive for something better in life. Settling is not a healthy practice in marriage, in employment, or in spirituality. Rather I am suggesting, in the pursuit of greatness, in this great crescendo that is a good life, we would do well to remember the good that we have been given/earned.
For me, I was always wondering why all my hard work had not left me with my house paid off, new cars, and all the little toys I wanted in life. Now I realize that doing work to its highest and best end is reward enough. Simply having and being able to work is its own reward.
