  • I watched portions of the YouTube/CNN Democratic Presidential Debate last night. I kind of watched and channel-surfed at the same time. One of the times I turned back to the debate, Senator Joe Biden was speaking. I don’t know what question he was answering, but his line was great. Quoting his father, Biden said, “Don’t talk to me about your values. Show me your budget.” Amen. May we, as Christ-followers, embrace this principle as a clear way to measure our spiritual values. Indeed, how me manage our money is an objective indicator of our spiritual devotion. Jesus stated it in blunt terms: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matt. 6:21) So, where’s your heart?
