I saw this on Marty Duren’s blog and was immediately in contemplative mode:

We spent $18 billion on make-up; $15 billion on perfume. For $10 billion we could get clean water everywhere on the planet.

I don’t know where the statistics come from, but if the numbers are close at all, it is staggering, heart convicting, and I wish we would all wake up to the cries of the world for justice. Paul Littleton commented that churches also spend $2.5 billion on new buildings annually and that with just a four-year building freeze we could address the issue. Oh, God, wake us up from our slumber!!!
