Former President George H. W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush, will soon be honored with coins bearing their images.

According to a resolution approved by Congress this week, the Treasury Department must mint and print presidential dollar coins with the image of President Bush for one year and bullion coins with the image of his wife during the same time period.

The representative who introduced the resolution in the House stated that the couple “epitomized the very best of America—and like their country, they were tough, strong, and kind. Our world is better because of them.”

The Bushes are proof of the lasting power of character. Now it’s our turn.

Jesus called us to “let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Then the world will say of us, “Our world is better because of them.”

This is the invitation and the promise of God.
