The Richest States in America

Funny how three of the 10 are related to government. Guess our tax dollars are being well spent on these public servant millionaires.

From the article:

**But while Mississippi may be one of the poorer states in the country, it’s also the most religious state **according to our list, so perhaps they can chalk it up to living a more austere life.

Median household income: $37,818

An important parallel here too. Wealth too often equates with self-reliance in an immoral way. Jesus was very serious about how hard it would be for the rich to get to heaven. Not because money is bad but because it takes our focus off of our dependence on God and puts it on self.
