Reopening Economies (from LAMPa)

date Posted: May 6, 2020

I’m not exactly sure what to make of the arguments that are prioritizing the economy over people’s lives.

What I do know though is that this isn’t new. It’s really old.

The economy was made to serve humanity, and not humanity to serve the economy. … [That] sounds more like the Kingdom of God. It sounds more like Shalom. It sounds more like loving our neighbor.

So the question comes down to this. If that is the case, then how do we live into that kind of economy? How do we open that kind of economy? What needs to change to be in alignment with God’s economic system? Or do just not want God’s economic system? Do we fear what we would lose in God’s economy?
