All one has to do to see what is important to a person is to look at their checkbook. We spend our money on what’s important to us, don’t we?
Our federal budget reflects the values of our nation. What is very clear is that the values reflected by our spending do no match up with the values of Christ. The way our government spends our money (and remember, the government does what we direct them to do), reflects the values of selfishness, greed and fear. And none of these are Christian values.
We can act as if we are disciples of Jesus Christ, but our checkbook says we talk better than we follow.
