Definitions

I was listening to the radio tonight and I heard some pretty good advice. They were speaking on the economic downturn and how we should react. One good point they made is to simplify our standard of living so we are ready for hard times but also so we are ready to help others in need. Marcie and I have talked a lot about paying off car and school debt quickly but also knocking a good portion of the house payment out. Also, they said to rejoice in the Lord and again rejoice. It would be hard not to be materialistic in America today so this is an opportunity to put God first and learn to depend on Him.

Here are a few definitions they shared that I thought were pretty good.

  • Faith is refusal to panic.
  • Humility isn't thinking less of yourself. Humility is thinking of yourself less.
I really liked the faith one since that really calls for change. When things are going right, its easy to say you have faith. It is only when things are in crisis mode that we can really see our faith and only then can others around us know it is there.
