Budgeting Morality

While we may be reluctant to accept any fault for the financial decay within our society, its moral decay is directly pointing back to the home. When did the erosion of the family unit come to pass? …

Money makes the world go round. No one can deny that. Whether loaded or in poverty, it’s a necessary evil. The economic crisis of our country has placed an even greater emphasis on budgeting the family income. Compromised corporate structures, mismanaged banks, salary-slashing, busted benefits, lost jobs, inflated insurance costs … each accompany an adequate portion of stress for our future. Financial peace is going to really test many families in the coming days. It is definitely getting America’s attention.

Amazing, isn’t it, our intense focus on budgeting for the financial lifestyle for our family, yet we give little to no regard to the budgeting of our family’s moral lifestyle? We can’t control the pitfalls in the ups and downs of the DOW, but we can control how we react to it. As a nation, all of us will suffer because of our leadership’s choices regarding budgeting, overspending, and their ongoing endeavor to stimulate our economic growth. We may have been directly, indirectly or not at all responsible for the turn of events in our current economic structure, but we will all be held accountable in some manner for the way it plays out. Our numbed silence must soon clear its froggy throat and find its voice again.

While we may be reluctant to accept any fault for the financial decay within our society, its moral decay is directly pointing back to the home. When did the erosion of the family unit come to pass? Can’t blame that on the old administration, or the present one. It’s been slowly eroding for decades. Suddenly, we’re caught in a vortex where we have one of our own states legalizing teenage strippers, as long as they don’t break the 11:30 curfew. Give me a break!

Our law enforcement and legal system are bogged and clogged with cases of pornography, molestation, abuse, rape, domestic violence, kidnapping, and, yes, even murder of our children. I contend the manner in which many parents allow their young children to dress oftentimes invites crimes of sexual perversion. Now we’re simply going to serve up our young girls on a “silver pole” and encourage the public to gawk, and even prostitute them if the girls are willing (we know many gawkers will!).

 Parents need to get serious in the home about teaching sound morality and not leave it to the “system.” The anything goes mentality has risen to epidemic level. It takes one loophole in legislation to further decompose our moral structure. If we depend on the same leadership that is stimulating our economy to shape our cultural decency, we may soon find ourselves morally bankrupt as well. Morality begins in the home. Budget yours today.
