Job Loss

Americans are losing their jobs as the economy worsens. Some of my friends are among the unemployed. I hope each of them finds a job soon. It must be extremely difficult to be unemployed as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach.

Perhaps you know someone who is unemployed—a friend, a relative, or a neighbor. You may be praying specifically for that person, but you can do more than pray. Why not keep your eyes and ears open for a job opportunity? Pass the tip along to the job seeker. Volunteer to serve as a reference, and encourage the unemployed person in tangible ways. Your friendship may be precisely what he needs—and what the Lord will use—to carry him through a tough transition.

“A friend loves at all times. And a brother is born for adversity” (Proverbs 17:17).
