If I understand what is being said by those who are supposed to know: we are in a recession because we are not growing economically. I may be hopelessly naïve, but it seems to me that growth has to end somewhere. If a human keeps growing, we will call him abnormal. If a plant keeps growing, we take the pruners or clippers to it. In other words, constant growth seems abnormal. When is enough enough? When do we quit being concerned about industrial and economic growth and start concentrating on consolidation? When do we stop accumulating wealth and start feeding the hungry (we have an obscene amount of hunger in this country given our wealth) and clothing the naked…or, at least, help the victims become productive and less dependent? I’m just saying…
And he said to them, “Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages” (Luke 3:14).
If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content (1 Timothy 6:8).
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have (Hebrews 13:5).
