Economic Envy – 211 DSR

Jones'

We discuss the dangers of keeping up with the elusive Jones’.

We ask the following:

– Since the word Greed is more commonly used when referring to money, is there a difference between envy & greed?

– TV was first demonstrated a mere 90 yrs. ago. Thoughts on it’s influence on Americas “Can’t Get Enough” attitude.

– Is TV’s influence intentional or accidental?

– TV’s appeal to emotion vs rational mind.

– TV, are we better off without it?

In the 2005 book – American Mania: When More is Not Enough we are reminded:

“Despite an astonishing appetite for life, more and more Americans are feeling overworked and dissatisfied. In the world’s most affluent nation, epidemic rates of stress, anxiety, depression, obesity, and time urgency are now grudgingly accepted as part of everyday existence. They signal the American Dream gone awry.”

Pastor Ahyh shares with us how Murphy’s Law has been showing up in his life lately.

Just because someone is a pastor, teacher, and very conservative financially doesn’t mean things can’t go sideways. Pastor Ahyh echoes the sentiment that it happens to the best of us.

He’s recently seen radical changes in finance, job and personal life that would cause most people to question everything including their faith.

Giving Thanks

Tithing:

– Where did the idea really come from?
– I’m spiritual, not religious, so I don’t give money away.
– If I give I won’t be able to pay my bills.
– If God doesn’t need my money, why does the preacher keep asking for it?
