Security in my days

Hezekiah... boasting to his enemy of his and his nations great wealth... in fact laid the marker for his nation's defeat... and his children's.

Hezekiah's response? Read it and see if it sounds familiar.
"Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, "Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: Behold, the days are coming, when all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have stored up till this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Nothing shall be left, says the LORD. And some of your own sons, who will come from you, whom you will father, shall be taken away, and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon." Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, "The word of the LORD that you have spoken is good." For he thought, "There will be peace and security in my days."
Isaiah 39:5-8 (ESV)

This is so much like reading today's political news... "We are rich! We can do what we want! We have so much money that we can invent money! (And our children will pay the price... just so we can live the good life today.)

This is the stimulus.

This is madness.

This is a failing society.

We must be prepared to pick up the pieces.
