Economic Stimulus Package

Checks from the US government are arriving in our mailboxes this week. Yahoo!! $600 per adult and another $300 per child (I love children). The reason we are getting these checks is because the government wants us to make an investment in the US economy primarily by spending it. So most of the country when they get these checks will go out and buy flat screens, buy vacations, buy furniture...some will pay off debt and some will save. Is there another option?

Yes. Don't invest it where moths and rust will destroy, invest it in eternal treasures (Matthew 6:19). Why use money to stimulate this economy, when you can stimulate heaven's economy?

Don't be afraid to let it go because you have a better possession and a lasting one (Heb 10:34)!
