What are our true priorities?
We can tell by when and how often our wallets make an appearance.
These statistics were printed in a November 2010 church bulletin at Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell, Georgia.
They speak for themselves.
U.S. Spending per year
Cars - $600,000,000,000
Xmas gifts - $250,000,000,000
Fast Food - $110,000,000,000
Ice Cream - $20,000,000,000
Weight Loss - $33,000,000,000
Missions - $39,000,000
Global Needs for every man, woman, and child
Basic Education - $6,000,000,000
Water/Sanitation - $9,000,000,000
Basic Health - $13,000,000,000
The basic humanitarian needs of the world could be met if Americans would be less selfish in one area by spending:
5% less on Cars
12% less on Xmas Gifts
22% less on Fast Food and Ice Cream
The money saved on weight loss products would more than cover the world's need.
Are we being good stewards of what we've been given?
