THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

The “Fiscal Cliff” could be avoided properly, if Congress would act like responsible adults.
However, it seems they act like a kid in a candy store with Dad’s credit card!

Guess we need a mother to preside over both houses.
Preferably, one with a BIG paddle!

Yes, I’m tired!
Tired of all the hullabaloo in our national leadership over SPENDING,
and MORE spending, and MORE spending!

Here’s what happened yesterday, as a result of the 150 page tax deal.
77.1% of all households will see their taxes RISE.
Social Security tax went up 2%.
Married couples will now receive LESS than twice the deduction for individuals.

ADDITIONALLY, these monies were “dolled out”:
$430million in tax perks for Hollywood,
$331 million for railroad operators,
$222 million for Puerto Rico and Virgin Island RUM PRODUCERS,
$70 million for NASCAR,
$59 million for algae growers,
$4 million for electric motorcycle makers, and even $15 million for asparagus growers.
((See http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/01/fiscal-cliff-deal-also-doles-out-millions-for-hollywood-railroads-rum-producers/))

MEANWHILE:
Large companies like HOBBY LOBBY and DOMINOS are headed for deep financial problems because
their CEO’s refuse, on a religious basis, to obey the rule ordering employers to provide free abortion drugs to workers.

YES! I’m TIRED!
Call me a preacher gone political if you want.

But, I believe it’s high time Christians STOOD UP and SPOKE OUT!!

Our national financial crises is caused by irrational, irresponsible leaders who
would rather “cut a deal” which “receiveth gifts” than to actually curtail spending!

C’mon Christians!
If we don’t call sin sin, then there will be no SHAME associated with the sin of underhanded deals which “receiveth gifts!”

Love ya!
