It’s a phrase we’re all familiar with, but I wonder how much we really think about why that’s printed on our money. What are you really trusting in for meaning and purpose in life, money or God or someone/something else?
Reading “In God We Trust” on our money should be a reminder that the foundation of our lives better be built on something more lasting than the money you hold in your hand (or have in your bank account).
Psalm 20:7 says, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
When that was written, chariots and horses were symbolic of your country’s strength and power. But King David didn’t ultimately place his trust in his army, but in his God. Remember this is the same man who took down Goliath with a rock… he has first-hand experience trusting God’s strength over man’s strength.
NBC is taking a poll online to see whether or not people want “In God We Trust” taken off our newly-minted money. You can vote here if you’re interested.
We should vote and make our voices heard… but if you really want to make a difference, then don’t count on an online poll… change your heart! Ask yourself the hard questions, like, “Do I really trust in God to provide for me, or am I living a self-reliant life?”
