Looking around me, I heard that many companies are retrenching... one after another. Or else, it will be getting people to have a 3-day or 4-day work week. So this year, the pro-family thingy is working. No longer 5.5 days but 4 days. *sigh*
Many bad news on the economy in Singapore and around the globe. But we all need to take a firm stand altogether. That is to really fix on our eyes on our Lord Jesus, who is the author and perfector of our faith. If we keep relying on the bad news and negative reports everyday, I think we will soon be sucked dry spiritually, emotionally and mentally. But I do hope that everyone play a part by giving hope to someone that we meet - everyday.
In fact, 2009 will be a year that many will be tested on their faith and perseverance in Christ. Let's really trust God in everything and not be wavered in the temporary.
Together, we can do it!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18, "16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
