Yankees vs. Red Sox: Money Series

To the victor goes the spoils, but with over $300 million in payroll between them, both the Red Sox and the Yankees are already spoiled. $300 million to play a game! I need to do some research, but my guess is that this is more than the GDP of a few Central American and African countries combined. Take a look around and see the excesses of our American culture and be amazed at what we take for granted. Running water, dependable electricity, 200+ TV stations, and a Starbucks within 15 minutes of our current location. Let’s heed Jesus’ warning that creature comforts have the tendency to pull us away from God’s Kingdom and be vigilant about getting too comfortable. Now I am not one to say that we do without or go and live in a cave somewhere. (I also believe that Starbucks is an inaliable right!) But I do believe we need to be more thankful of our circumstance and more conscientious of our friends and neighbors who are without.
