Some records are fun to break. Record gas prices are not at the top of that list. A few extra cents at the pump have turned into a few more dollars. A few extra cents or dollars per gallon add up quickly. A few expensive fill-ups a month add up just as quickly.
So, what do we do? It’s easy to worry and it’s popular to complain, but in my experience, neither of those accomplish much of anything. Perhaps we should try something else. Instead of worrying or complaining, what if we thought about our relationship with money and worry.
This last weekend in church we joined to sing Psalm 65 which included the following statements:
“You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.”
