I'm feeling sick right now.
My church will have spent $40,000 on stain glass windows by the end the year. They're pretty, I suppose, although I prefer seeing out to watch kids walk home from school.
For that amount of money we could have built eighteen homes for families in Mexico who currently live in wooden huts with dirt floors. Their new homes would be the size of my living room, but they would have electricity, concrete floors, and functioning outhouses. And those families would have been thrilled.
Which one would honor Christ more? A pretty picture of him holding a child, or a real home where a child could sleep more comfortably tonight?
