I was fascinated and encouraged by this brief article on faith influencing our nation in the November 30, 2007 edition of the Wall Street Journal. The article is titled “The Currency of Faith: How one man put God into Circulation.”
I have always been intrigued by God’s influence on our American culture and our brief history as a nation. For 1996 Atlanta Olympics, our family purchased a $35 brick with the inscription “In God We Trust.” Our family believes his posture of dependence on God is a bedrock for the Lord’s continually favor on families and governments. Therefore, as we look to men and women to lead our Nation, let’s ask God for those who embrace and cherish our heritage of honoring Jesus Christ by embracing his values and principles for living. “In God we Trust” is not a trite or passing phrase. It is commitment to Christ and His grand scheme of things. Lastly, it is a reminder, because it is embedded on money, to make and manage money well. This will one day invite the affirming words of Jesus, “Well Done”!
