Cincinnati businesses are currently struggling with the new regulations, stipulations and restrictions of Obamacare. The new health care laws in the United States impose stiff penalties for companies that do not make affordable health insurance possible for their employees. News.cincinnati.com reports that many Tri-State businesses are not sure if they fall under the mandates of the federal health care laws. The confusion is leading many business owners to frustration over the new regulations. In addition, Cincinnati area businesses have spent a lot of money already just trying to understand the new laws. What is clear from all of the health care laws is that companies have put expanding and hiring on hold for now until they fully understand the impact of Obamacare.

While Cincinnati businesses look for understanding and wisdom in dealing with new laws in the United States, Cincinnati Christians should look to the Scriptures for understanding and wisdom. Proverbs 1:1-6 states, “The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: to know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth – Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles.”

In addition, James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” Cincinnati Christians should be going to God and to the Scriptures for insight, wisdom, guidance, understanding and direction. While the world can be confusing and daunting, God’s Word provides discernment and wisdom at every turn. Life is full of situations and moments when confusion sets in, but God gives wisdom to his people when they ask for it. Therefore, Cincinnati Christians: seek God, ask for wisdom, search his Word for guidance and follow his ways. He holds wisdom and knowledge, and he gives freely to those who ask. May Cincinnati Christians be known for their discernment and wisdom.
