Hello
 
This week, I was reading about Joe Biden’s stimulus plan for a U.S. economy devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. $1.9 trillion doesn’t sound like much when you read it quickly, but when you realise that is 1.9 with 12 zeros after it, it’s quite something to consider.
 
If his proposal is passed by Congress, Biden wants to make a direct payment of $1400 dollars to every single American household. Will his plan work? Only time will tell. But many are already describing it as simply throwing money at the problem.
 
Contrast that with another plan devised by arguably the greatest world leader in history, Jesus Christ. He didn’t throw money at problems, he threw solutions. He fed the poor, healed the sick, restored sight to the blind and forgave the unforgiveable. In fact, that last action was the solution to the biggest problem of all, the conundrum that at the end of every human life, there is death.
 
Jesus died and rose again so that we might do the same.
 
You could call that the most successful stimulus plan of all time.
 
All the very best
 
Peter Mill
