Faith During Adversity

Faith is hard to come by during economic adversity. A recent mortgage fraud case reminded me of that truth.
The borrower grew their business by buying houses and rehabbing them, leveraging as much debt as they could borrow. Eventually mistakes were made and properties remained unsold, consuming cash.
Eventually the borrower had to decide, do I admit my problem and accept the consequences, or do I lie to the lender and use their money on other projects. Unfortunately, fear overcame their conscience and their faith, leading them into fraud.
Psalm 23:4 can be trusted when it says, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”
If you’re faced with a similar dilemma, choose faith, not fear.
