Where are the jobs?

We have a lot of people laid off at church. God will provide.

The healthcare plans if passed will take away 2 million jobs. energy taxation. 2 million jobs. If we see a strong increase in minumum wage, that will be another 1 million jobs.

It is ok to let congress know we are concerned. Don't sound hostile or nasty if you call. All things work together for good. If the liberals vote for things that kill jobs, they will be looking for one next election. We have church tonight. I hear someone is planning a big speech tonight.

“I reject the notion”
“put American people ahead of politics”
“no more politics as usual”
“time for action”
“must not delay”
“problem not of my making”
“real world solutions”
“there are some who say”

Need a spread sheet to take a tally of these power phrases

Re: Where are the jobs?

The American Dream was never to have a job. A job makes you dependent on your employer. Our hope is in God not our jobs. Most Americans are unhappy with their jobs. Our time and our freedom has been stolen with our belief that we need a job.

King James Bible
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

If I lean on a shovel, should I pray for a hole?
welfare check?

The LORD is the Providor,
I liked some commentary from T.D. Jakes regarding work. People whine that their boss is mean or worse and their job is boring or the don't find it fulfillment. No where in he bible did God promise self actualization which is coupled with Maslow's heirarchy of needs.
after last night, we may have our insurance out of the account by the IRS and not enough left for rent and groceries

Re: Where are the jobs?

Can I mention that I hate my job and that it bores me to tears? I was actually happy when we went to 4 day work weeks. Especially since unemployment picks the fith day up.

BUT... I am glad I have it...

My dad visited a Mennonite church once during vacation. He told me the message that Sunday morning and it has stuck with us both.

The preacher asked how many hours we spend at work during the week. The answer is usually at least 40+. He then asked how many hours a week we devote specifically to God's work. The answer is usually nowhere close to 40.

I believe Kae is on the right track in terms of this discussion.
