Late into Tuesday night, negotiators from both houses in Congress were still rushing to put the final pieces together for the tax plan. Their goal is to merge the Senate and House versions of the tax plan before voting on the new version and sending it to the president. They are wrestling with keeping as many deductions as they can while still trying to address the possibility of significantly adding to the national debt over the next decade.
The president has invited congressional negotiators to the White House for lunch today and will be discussing current progress as well as outlining the next steps. President Trump is scheduled to follow up with a live event where he will speak on tax reform, give progress updates, and be joined by several middle-class families who would benefit from the new legislation.
"I will be praying for our President. The speech he gave tonight restored our faith in America, in our leadership. Inspiring! God Bless our President! " - Penelope P.

Did you know more than one in every three Americans shop on Black Friday? According to research, more than 108 million people participate in the most famous shopping day of the year. Why? While a few go for enjoyment, most will admit to joining the chaos for a great deal. People like to get a jumpstart on Christmas shopping and want to buy their gifts at rock bottom prices. They wait in line for hours, camp out the night before, and push and shove their way to save a dollar.
In today’s passage, Paul speaks of a free gift – one where pushing and shoving aren’t necessary. It’s the gift of grace through Jesus Christ. This unique present is in unlimited supply, and you can get it year round.
Do you get more excited about saving money than saving souls? Christ died on the cross for the sins of everyone. And everyone is eligible to receive His salvation. Ask God to create a passion in you for sharing that gift with others now and into the coming New Year. Then pray for your nation’s leaders to discover and accept His free gift of grace as well.
