Let’s think of God as a capitalist…

on

God and capitalism? Seriously? At times, it can be so easy to just take from God and not give anything back. Yeah, we might say a quick prayer and give God the glory for our blessings but other than that what do we really do to give back to God and to invest in the kingdom of heaven? The reason that I said that we should think of God as a capitalist is because this will help us to understand the very importance of giving back to God and also help us to understand how we can do so. Capitalists start off with money and then they invest that money to build a commodity and then they sell that commodity on for more money than they actually invested to make a profit and then the cycle continues. This model is known as the M-C-M model, the majority of us operate using the C-M-C model as we aren’t capitalists. But anyway. Using that model it is very easy to fit God into the equation. God starts off with the ability to save us and then he invests in us by giving us the gift of salvation and then we are meant to increase in value by decreasing in ourselves and magnifying God to bring others to God and then the cycle will start again as that new person spreads the gospel. God has instilled within everyone of us a gift and it is our duty to use it to give back to God because by doing this, we will be storing our treasures in heaven and not on earth. This is very similar to the parable of the talents, there will come a time when God will ask us what we did with the gifts that he gave us, it is very important for us to be able to answer that question. I pray that as daughter’s of God that we will understand the true importance of giving back to God. I pray that we will be able to stand strong in our faith and that we will all be able to realise the true importance and the value of storing our treasures in heaven and not on earth, I pray that we will be able to fix our eyes on you Lord. In Jesus’ name,

Amen
