I just saw on my Yahoo front page that Americans spent around $1.9 billion on Easter candy.
Aren't we all broke?
Don't get me wrong, some of that $1.9 billion was mine...but now I'm feeling really bad about it.
Can you imagine if instead of Easter candy we were all like, "For Easter let's all get together and give $1.9 billion to feed poor children, k?" how much the world would change in one fell swoop??
It is just astounding to me. I'm thinking this is not what Jesus had in mind for the celebration of His resurrection.
