for in its welfare, you will find your welfare… Jeremiah 29:7

My Pondering

This is all about the Golden Rule and that givers gain. Daniel was a great example of this principle. Joseph and Queen Esther too. Flourish where you are planted. Let your good works be evident in the midst of chaos.

Here is a distinct passage where we this in action.

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

2nd Corinthians 1:3-5

We receive comfort to provide comfort.

Unfortunately fortunately we also receive sufferings for the same reason. It is a true dichotomy.

If you notice, God doesn’t spare from all troubles, but be encouraged as He both helps us through them and most definently uses them like no other (Romans 8:28 – if you don’t know it by heart, look it up).

Inflation and government spending

My Pondering

It would be interesting to see this chart with ALL the HYPER inflation of late.

If the FEDS stopped giving away and printing money like drunken sailors, which is an indirect form of taxation as our currency devalues thus most everything costs everyone more, we would actually be in better shape. When you earn money by delivering value in an agreeable exchange between buyer and seller (capitalism) then we don’t have this kind or crazy hyper inflation. When the government redistributes wealth by handouts or manipulation of taxes, as they see fit, picking winners and losers, then we get this hyper inflation and a depressed economy (which are certain to follow under these tactics).

No, I am not an phd economist just a an American businessman in the real world.
