Cost of the Tokyo Olympics – September 20

Now that the Tokyo Olympics are over did you happen to hear what the total costs were? A university of Oxford study says that it was the most expensive Olympics on record. The official price tag for the Tokyo Olympics was 15.4 billion US dollars. That is an unfathomable amount. If you were to save a hundred dollars a day it would take you 10 million days to save up a billion dollars. That is over 27 thousand years. Try to picture 15.4 billion! Something else we cannot fathom is the cost of making provision for our salvation. The bible tells us in John 3:16 that, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
