Recession Proof

I find the commotion around the movie “Fireproof” fascinating. We have lost our way in a lot of ways (forgive the unintended pun) and it really takes its toll on our interpersonal relationships. For men we are so used to the saying that “if mama ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy” but we don’t heed the words very well. Now mix into that the shift from prosperity days to scarcity years! Will this do even more damage to the traditional male/female, husband/wife relationship???
I was also thinking about the word “proof” and some of its meanings. One of those is the need for validation. Got word of more layoffs today which is “proof” that we are certainly headed to a recession. Another meaning for proof has to do with the volume of. Grain alcohol has a very high “proof” level while beer is not so near! The final meaning of proof is guarded against or resistant to. I affirm that there is proof in our faith that God loves us dearly and is with us always no matter what. I am not so sure of the level of proof that we allow God to be in our lives. Maybe the proof of the matter is in the response of each of us to a faithful interpretation of discipleship regardless of the circumstances around us. đŸ™‚
That is probably enough spellbinding language for today! Cheers.
