enjoy the garden

Saturday April 18th, Acts 4: 34 There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.  Not exactly the wonders of the unregulated free market is it?  Now that you don’t have to do anything what are you going to do?  As with most relationships, sometimes our reaction goes a bit overboard at first.  In time, if it is real, we settle into a more reasonable and sustainable pattern of relationships.  Whereas sharing everything equally, like a totally unregulated free market economy, may seem like lofty goals, reality has taught us, sometimes painfully, they are not sustainable goals.  Justice however is sustainable, legal justice, economic justice, keeping things fair, somewhat balanced, flexible and always with the good intentions of the other at heart, that is justice that can live on.  That is the fertile soil in which the seeds of grace can be planted and grow.   Now that you don’t have to do anything what are you going to do????? I suggest you work up a plot of land with some good justice, plant some seeds of grace and enjoy your garden.
