God's Message to This World



Quite a few of my friends take part in this blogosphere activity and it has always been one of my favorites. So I thought I'd jump in too.


Riches and honor are with me, yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold; and my revenue than choice silver.


Proverbs 8:18-19

As I think about all of the economic issues not just in our country, but the world, I keep thinking about the real need: Jesus. The words of that song are always echoing in my mind. "You can have this whole world, but give me Jesus."



This week's World Filled Wednesday is being hosted by Lori of "All You Have to Give" and you can go there to find more posts.
