Give Me My Portion!

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
(Luke 12:13-15 ESV)

What’s your entitlement?  The root of the world’s sentiments towards the things they “deserve” is covetousness and selfish desires.  Some part lazy.  Lazy and rest are 2 different things.   The government has lost its way and has convinced culture of the same.  Lost is the value of earning because of the hard work you’ve put forth.  “In” is the mindset of “I don’t need to work that hard because I’ll get what I need for free anyway.”  Sad.  Terrible.

Let me just say, we are not rich in money.  We do not have millions or even hundred thousands. We are considered the “middle class.”  We are your average family, making an average wage, living an average life, striving to be good stewards of what’s been entrusted to our care.  No, we don’t do it perfectly but it’s our goal.  I salvage what I can, repurpose, don’t waste food (eat what you take, take what you can eat).  I believe food waste is terrible stewardship of one of God’s many blessings.  We have gone from being thankful for our food scraps to being so picky because we have plenty.  We take food for granted.  What a shame!

Money never has grown on trees, or has it?  Well, now, money grows out of machines and losing its value thanks to our supposedly gracious government.  It’s not wise but who cares?  Everyone is getting what’s coming to them, right?

This has been a random ramble, brought to you by moi.
