Piper on Recession

I get John Piper's sermons by email. I encourage you to subscribe. www.DesiringGod.org 

I don't always read it, but this week's caught my eye. He did a wonderful work speaking of why we are having a recession. My summary:

1. God does not need our money to expand the kingdom
2. We need to put down our idols of "stuff."
3. We need to get a taste of the fact that many people in the world live in a never ending recession or even depression. 
4. We who have, need to give to those who don't.

Good food for thought and very convicting. So can I encourage you as he did me. Let's not waste the recession. Blessings
