Money or Goodness

July 16, 2012 at 8:46 AMTony

People love money. I've not been free of love of money myself. But money didn't provide the sun and rain or the seed that we plant for harvest. Jesus said we should be like our Father in heaven who provides sun and rain for the good and bad alike. You could argue that money provided the increase in productivity for the food industry but 'Goodness' might have done that anyway. Also there's much wrong with the food industry from the point of view of our being stewards of creation - don't you think?

Goodness would see us share - "Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same." Luke 3:11 NIV. Goodness would not see someone go hungry while others are well fed. Goodness would make use of everybody's God given talents and give adequate provision. Goodness would do all sorts of things differently.

Goodness is just one of the fruits of the Spirit.
