“…INCOME RE-DISTRIBUTION: That unfamiliar term has brought much of my economic life to a stand-still…”

20131109_210753Distribution: How important is your time; wealth; career, space, allocation of goods; marketing; sharing, real estate; and even math? These are issues that are affected, or controlled by …distribution.

The distribution our time… between career, family, play, and spiritual matters is a challenging issue. Deciding when, how, where, and how much of our money, and time… is spent on this or that, is… or should be…a high priority. The allocation of the fruits of our labor, as to time, space, and quantity is no long entrusted to us common folk…nope… because the current Administration employs the Robin Hood Act; which “takes from the rich and gives to the poor.” A newer, more volatile term would be INCOME RE-DISTRIBUTION. Complicated?

I remember well, during the elections of 2008…the term “income-redistribution” being used.  What the heck is that? I thought, too….Yeah…good luck on that. It shouldn’t have any affect me. Boy…was I in for a surprise.  That unfamiliar term has brought much of my economic life to a stand-still.

We each are born differently, given varied talent… using them in varied ways, and as such, God expects varied results. He is the one who invented DISTRIBUTION, and he is the ultimate controller. While God created us equally; everything else from then on, so it seems… is decidedly different. The point we want to remember is that “our distributorship” is simply ON-LOAN from the “Heavenly Distributor.” Our Heavenly Father has loaned us the time, the skill, the resources… and the free-will, to “handle His assets.” We will be judged by our stewardship.

In the end – God is the great enforcer. Luke 12:48 says: For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.
