1 Corinthians 1:9-10 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
If we remember that we Were Created to be like GOD, we will realize that we Are Called to be faithful, too. It is easy to see that the enemies of GOD have done much to deter most people from being truly honest, and living with integrity and trustworthiness. (Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man? Micah 7:2 The faithful man has perished from the earth, and there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; every man hunts his brother with a net.
The competition of capitalism and the other forms of economic systems has positioned men against each other. They do not promote brotherhood and co-operation, consideration and/or support of each other. They encourage ruthlessness, deceit, and trickery in a desperate attempt to out-maneuver other businesses.
Luke 16:10-13 He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon (money), who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own? No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Mankind’s attempt to rule over his own affairs apart from The Guiding Principles of The Bible have resulted in an unavoidable conflict between GOD and His Created offspring (mankind). GOD Is All-Knowing And Perfect, so He Has No Intentions of changing His Ways, so that leaves each one of us people in a ‘pickle’. We either decide to choose GOD’s Way (and let Him Guide our Lives), or choose the way of clawing, gnawing, and trying to prevent ‘the competition’ from being successful.
Here is wisdom… GOD Cannot lie. He Is Faithful to His Word. He Said that He Would Provide all our needs. A little common sense should put us on the road to success in our lives, if we will just exercise The Faith that GOD Has Put within each of us. (Romans 12:3)
History will record each of our paths… 😀
