…making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
2 Chronicles 35
An attribute of leadership is generosity. Do you know our President does not take his salary but instead gives it away?
“Prior to his donation to DHS, Trump has given his salary to the Departments of Transportation, Veterans Affairs, Health and Human Services, and Education; as well as the Small Business Administration, and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, among others.” Townhall.com
“As of 2014, the president earns an annual salary of $400,000 per year, plus a $50,000 non-taxable expense account. The presidential salary had been $200,000 since 1969, but in 1999, Congress passed legislation doubling the salary to its current level before President George W. Bush took office. The president's salary is subject to income tax. The non-taxable expense account is generally used to cover the costs of meetings or events that are not sponsored by a government department or agency. Any money from the expense account that is not used within a calendar year is returned to the Treasury Department.” Sapling.com
There were few kings who kept the Passover in Israel but Josiah was certainly one of them, doing it according to the Word of the Lord. God can to speak us through a donkey so we have to pay attention to know when it is Him or not.
God’s love and desire for His children never goes away.
2 Timothy 2
The Word of the Lord will never be complexly bound (it is illegal in many nations) but it is forever settled in Heaven and will always find its way to humans. God is always faithful.
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,[c] a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
My purpose for my life must be to be useful for my Master’s use.
Apply: Meditate on the faithfulness of God leave each day likewise.
Thanks for the interesting facts about President Trump's salary!
I didn't put in that there have only be 5 raises since George Washington and he received $25,000. That was worth a whole lot more than $400,000. is today! Pretty amazing! I know when I was home schooling my boys, back then it was $200,000.
God indeed gives our lives good purpose when we live His plan. Trump is a good businessman, he is trying to make a difference where he can.
And we can sure see God's grace on him! Thank You Jesus!
