Bartering In Today's World

Dear God,
If this world got rid of all currency and went to a barter system, I am afraid that I would STARVE.

It seems that some people  can do everything and my mom could have lived very well in a barters world. She could cook, grow plants, sew, work power tools, mow the yard, recover furniture, take care of animal's needs, drive a fork lift, do laundry like a pro, clean the house and make it immaculate!! There wasn't a whole lot this woman couldn't do. My mother-in-law is the same way.

If we went to a barter system, most people on a cell phone, play video games, surf the internet. WOO HOO! That's GREAT!

I think that I need to polish up on more life skills or something just in case we ever do have to barter to survive. It may come in handy someday. I feel like I am missing out on some good living by not doing these things.


{Daily Scripture Reading: Proverbs 31:13-22}

She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.

Proverbs 31:18
