Americans spend $705 billion a year on entertainment and recreation,
$65 billion on jewelry,
$31 billion on pets,
and $13 billion on cosmetic surgery.
Richard Stearns says in his book, The Hole in Our Gospel, that "we don't believe we are wealthy, so we don't see it as our responsibility to help the poor. We are deceived."
Did you know that if you make $50,000 per year you are wealthier than 99 percent of the world?
