"World leaders unveiled a set of sweeping plans on Saturday aimed at tackling the ever-expanding economic crisis"

Or...

I say this because you should not become anxious about your life: what you will eat and what you will drink; and not about your body, what you will wear. Is not your soul more important than food, and the body than clothing? Behold the birds in the sky, that they do not sow, and they do not reap, and they do not gather into storehouses. And your Father who is in heaven feeds them. Are you not more important than they?

"Who among you, while anxious, is able to add one thing to his importance? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the wild, how they grow without hard work and spinning, but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these. But if God clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will he not much more clothe you, you of little faith?

"Therefore do not be anxious, or say, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or, 'What will we wear?' For all these things the peoples of the world require and your Father who is in heaven also knows that you require all of these things. But seek first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for each day is its evil."
(Matthew 6:25-34)

"Do not put your trust in earthly rulers, nor in human kind, for there is no help in them." (Psalm 146:3).

So, who do you put your faith in? It is my prayer that it would be none other than the One who spoke these words recorded in the Book of Matthew.

ALL things are in Yeshua's Hands!
