Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd

 

Jesus Sowing SeedThe other morning I was reading in the book of Lamentations 1:1-3. This brought to mind an old saying that I’ve heard all of my life, “What goes around comes around.”

The Bible tells us that we reap what we sow. I was reading theses verses from the Living Bible this morning, “Jerusalem’s streets, once thronged with people, are silent now.

The economic data calendar was thin. The Fed’s Flow of Funds data showed that household net worth rose $1.2 trillion in Q310 (to $54 trillion), down $10 trillion from 2007. The trade deficit narrowed unexpectedly in October. On 60 Minutes, Fed Chairman Bernanke said that the Fed could extend its asset purchases if conditions warrant.

President Obama and Republican congressional leaders agreed to a package that would extend the Bush tax cuts for two years, extend unemployment insurance benefits by 13 months, and cut the employee-paid portion of payroll taxes for a year. While many see this as “stimulus,” it’s more of a non-negative (preventing growth from weakening rather than driving it sharply forward). European debt worries continued to simmer, as Europe debated the possible creation of a euro-bond (not backed by specific countries). The fixed-income rout continued (in the U.S. and around the world), sending the 10-year Treasury back to levels last seen in June. «Read the rest of this article»
