George Bush Timex
he was the 41st President of the United States, George W. Bush wore a $50 Timex
And George Bush had company.
The 40th President of the United States
Bill Clinton's watch
was also a $50
Timex. And both former Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush still wear Timex
Why do the Presidents of the most powerful country in the world wear cheap Timex watches? It's because when it comes
to wrist watches, the
ultimate statement of power is an understatement.
imitate the also-rans like Putin and Berlusconi
and go beyond the likes of George Bush.
Consider this: for $2, frontline Christian organizations, including Bible organizations
can print and smuggle a
Bible into a hostile country where they are banned, and for every Bible that reaches such
a country, three new people on average come to believe in Jesus.
Instead of spending $10,000 or $60,000, let alone $540,000 to imitate
the princes of this world, why not be good stewards of God's money by wearing a
$50 Timex like George Bush and Bill Clinton, or Swatch, Casio or Citizen, and donate the difference to
winning souls for Christ?
For $9,950 ($10,000-$50 Timex), over 4,400 Bibles can reach the
lost and over 13,200 souls
won. For $59,950, over 26,000 Bibles can reach the lost and over 78,000 souls won. For
$539,950, those numbers rise to almost 270,000 Bibles
delivered and 810,000 souls won.
Think about this. Luxury watches are by definition watches that cost more than their utility.
Thousands of souls can be saved just by
you wearing a less shiny watch. You
can use God-entrusted money to please yourself or to serve God. The
consequences, according to Jesus, are serious:
the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master
will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in
due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when
he comes. Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he
has. But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his
coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and
drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is
not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him
in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant
who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to
his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet
committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For
everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom
much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.” (Luke 12:42-48)
