What a timely gospel this is. The income gap… between rich and poor people… between rich and poor countries… is growing to obscene proportions. But none of this is a new phenomenon. Think of the thousands who labored for years to build pyramids for one pampered person to stuff with the treasures he hoped to enjoy in the after life. It makes as little sense now as it did then. 

In the face of massive economic inequities, while we seek just solutions… our eyes are on the real prize… on the treasures that can’t be stolen… on the investments that never lose their value. Greed and envy are opposite faces of the same ugly coin. Love is the currency of eternal life. And we can mint it all day long… in constant, reflexive courtesy… in acts of random kindness… in a life deliberately dedicated to giving and forgiving.

Both the have’s and the have not’s are beloved children of God… brothers and sisters… and commanded to act accordingly. Rich or poor, or somewhere in between, in Christ's love you can take it with you… we can, and we will, get there from here. 

God love you,
