“Make hay while the sun is shining,” my Dad often said…he understood that good times passed by quickly. In the case of America’s financial prosperity…it may be passed for a long while!
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:15-16/ESV)
