Oh. So the moral of the story, parable, is that we should know our (financial) place. Let the rich keep there money and when they steal it from us
we should just know our place.
Sounds like a bankers wet dream.
This thread is about finance and global melt down right ? Just checking.
Debt must always be paid. When I earn $50, the debt was paid by my work before the $50 arrived in my hand. A thief comes along and steals what I
earned. He now takes possession of the $50, but now owes the debt for what was taken. I am now down $50. I am then obligated to earn another $50
because of the debt the thief produced. In the end, the debt he owes is given back to me as payment in multiples in the end for being wronged. The
enemy becomes the footstool.
As the Bible says, "They have their reward."
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
A song of ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand
guard in vain.
What does it mean in the Bible about the house and the builders? Builders are those who possess a mind. The mind is the builder. A house is where
we reside now and in the future. What we do now is bound in heaven and what we loose here is loosed in heaven. The purpose is building the next
house. All souls occupy a dwelling and the builder is responsible for directing the work on the next building. Goat hair tents lead to mud and
brick. After mud and brick, the builder can used stone. Eventually, there is a solid foundation and structure that cannot be moved. The wilderness
and nomadic life is replaced with the solid footing of a house unmoved.
Men who build their own house build in vain. In my signature, there is an article on goat hair tents that explains this story from the root
morphology of the Hebrew language.
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would
I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with
me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Jesus the Way to the Father
5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my
Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
