Reflections on High Gas Prices and Habakkuk
So what should our response be to the endless barrage from the news media on increasing gasoline and food prices and the war in Iraq and...and...and...and...Habakkuk has some very good insight, note chapter 3 and verses 17-18: Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. We should spend some time preparing ourselves as things may get much worse both here in the U.S. and elsewhere before they get better. Many of us would benefit studying Habakkuk and meditating on these verses.
