Raising the moral of the Middle class is not dependent on the whims of the wealthy or powerful if it were we would never have risen from our roots as a colony. It is the dream of freedom and liberty that spurs us on. In the belief that no matter what if we worked hard save and invest we can create wealth for ourselves our children and our children’s children. WE base this hope in the Divine promise of joy that come with giving, not amassing wealth for wealth’s sake. Of honoring our Creator with our first fruits and giving as God has blessed us. To the Hebrews this meant a tithe and the bringing of the sacrifices of husbandry and field. Jesus said it this way “pay what you owe to Caesar and to God what you owe to him.” His coverage of the temple taxes through providence indicates our faith needs to be in this providence so that no matter who is elected or what taxes are imposed. no matter how onerous, we can depend on the creator to provide all of our needs and more than an earthly father. His desires are to give us much of what we desire. Our roles is to be good stewards of His largess and live like the sons and daughter of the King honoring Him in all we do. After all who is more powerful and rich than the Lord God creator of the universe and all it contains!
