The Economy Might Be Down, but Candy Sales Are Up!

It has been a challenging year for our economy! Recession or not, the price of everything is up, and consumers are cutting their budget and spending to make ends meet.

Would you like to know what segment of our economy is recession-proof? Candy sales! Since we are gearing up for Halloween and buying candy, you would think that might bring the economy up!

In this depressed economy, Americans are projected to spend over $3 BILLION on candy for Halloween! That is a lot of Snickers! Or list your favorite candy. Total Halloween sales will top $10 billion.

What is the result of all that candy? Well, it might give us a temporary high and a long-term expanded waist, but the value is temporary.

The same can be said for our stocks. They are up one day and down the next. However, a gift to God’s work is eternal and carries eternal blessings. That is where our investments need to be! Consider the words of Jesus who said in Matthew 6…

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Every time we take up the offering, you have a chance to make a difference. That difference is in the changed lives of men, women, boys, and girls. So, let’s put our hearts and treasures in a place of eternal value! We provide you with multiple ways to give. Please find the best way for you and help us change the world for Christ!
