Spreading the Gospel

Mark 16:15 "... Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation..."

Is this something that we need to be doing more of? Should we be preaching on the street corner that house prices are too high, that renting is cheaper than buying, that North America's economy is in for a rude awakening? When friends talk about jumping into this market with heavy hearts, I try to tell them that there is no shame in waiting it out. Things will get better. We have to believe that. We have to have faith!

There are many signs out there that things are awry. I love the following sites because they remind me to stay strong.

Don't Buy Stuff You Can't Afford

Today's housing market is as much out of context as the Scripture above. I do believe that we can have an impact by telling others that high prices and unaffordability are not here to stay. The bottom line is - don't do something foolish out of fear.
