Yesterday was a great day here in Louisiana, spending time with folks in Lafayette and Baton Rouge. Today I’ll get a chance to visit the National World War II Memorial in New Orleans before heading home. However, one thing sticks with me from my time here in the beautiful Bayou State: attending church service at First Baptist of Lafayette. Pastor Steve preached yesterday from the Book of Acts, Chapters 2, 4, and 5 about the five principles of Christian stewardship: unity, generosity, necessity, personal integrity, and accountability. As I reflect upon the decisions in our Nation’s capitol today I wish Pastor Steve had given that sermon on the House and Senate floor, and to a certain someone in the Oval office. Folks in DC are sent to be stewards and representatives and I wonder if we were to ask what their guiding principles are, what the response would be. Heck, I’d just like to know what sermon message they heard on Sunday morning. Our resources are not their toys and our lives are not for their manipulation. Do the right thing today Harry Reid. America is watching your stewardship.
