Wealthy nations are fighting for dear economic life as they continue to see their pride and once unshakeable financial institutions crumble under the weight of corruption, mismanagement, and greed. The time of reckoning is here and its reverbrations will be felt across the developing world.
Global fight against poverty and diseases will certainly be affected, if not take the backseat. Christian churches in the northern hemisphere are now calling members to prayer. May be they should have done more to speak up on the immorality of un-Christian consumption habits.
No one is able to predict events about to unfold. The best minds appear to be groping in the dark. Could it be that the present world crisis is God's way of speaking to us? That we lose much by distancing ourselves from him and that we need to return to him so he can restore our moral moorings. Think about that.
