This has been a year that we will never forget. 2020 was a highly contentious presidential election year in the middle of a global pandemic. Violence and unrest filled the streets of many cities. Many, many people experienced (and are still experiencing) severe financial hardship. And, of course, many became seriously ill due to the Coronavirus.
Much has been said and written about 2020; I wrote a few articles about it myself. Not surprisingly, based on page visits, they were among the most popular posts on the blog this year.
Throughout the year, I have tried to provide a God-centered, biblically sound perspective on the pandemic’s economic issues. It’s been a difficult task, especially when things looked so dark. There is hope on the horizon, not just because of vaccines for the virus, but because our good and gracious God sovereignly reigns over all his creation. No matter what the circumstances, we can put our faith and trust in him as his children.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”Jer. 17:7-8 (ESV)
