Most nights I try to do a short Bible study with my kids and last night the Bible verse that came up was Isaiah 55:9. The context of the Bible study was that God has a plan for our lives and it is not always clear to us what this plan is as things are happening in our life.
I think a lot about this in the business world, especially in light of what has been going on in the economy in the last five years. On a regular basis, we see peoples' life savings vanish because of decreasing real estate values in Omaha. The take away from this verse is that we have no idea what God has planned for our lives. For example, read the story of Abraham Lincoln's life. When his fiance' died, Abraham Lincoln thought it was the end of the world as he knew it. Yet ten years later he was elected President of the United States. Think how this may relate to someone you know.
