new loopholes

Tuesday June 30th, 2nd Corinthians 8:  13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, 15 as it is written: "He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little."  Remember the desert lesson mentioned in yesterday’s meditation, greed and hording stink.  We can all point to some golden parachute CEO with their million dollar bailout rewards as the evil in the world and in the process fail to look into our own hearts.  It is God’s will that there be some sense of equality among the people of God, and yes that does include tax increases.  And that would include all of creation that God called good.  Tax cuts for the top, program cuts for the bottom, the ever widening gap between the have and the have not’s, these are not new issues.  God has been trying to wean humanity off this type of greedy immaturity for eons.  Inequality is the hotbed in which terrorism grows, and the deathbed in which God’s creation suffers and dies.  Inequality has been justified as God’s will by every nation which has ever fallen from power to ruin and yet we continue to find new ways of justifying it and new loopholes to make it happen.  In the end, it is the ruination of all we seek, and a point of despair for God and humanity.  You think we would learn and hear the voice of God.  The sad reality is that we have only learned new loopholes.
