I have made the tough decisions, always with an eye toward the bottom line. Perhaps it’s time America was run like a business. Donald Trump
Meditation: The business model applied to American politics with the bottom line of making as much money as possible for the already rich is a devastating philosophy. Tough decisions do not mean to declare not to pay the laborers their fair wage at the end of the day while saving the investor from having to pay taxes. Tough decisions do not mean to do away with programs that care for the survival of the people on the bottom of society while putting money in the pockets of those who do not even know what the “bottom line” of survival looks and feels like. Perhaps, no…perhaps, yes, it’s time to expose the shady games of people who abuse their status and money making tactics. Perhaps it’s time to call the last nine months a disaster, a failed business and an insult to all ethics and morals that this country stands for.
Prayer: God, in Jesus you decided that the bottom line for You are people, not money. Jesus always had his eye towards those people who live at the bottom of society. They are the ones who have full access to Your care and “kin-dom”. Not business that sacrifices the well-being of people “on the bottom” shall reign the world, but love and justice shall prevail. Your “Kin-dom” shall reign. Your Kin-dom as all those who are kin to You, God, and, therefore, who are kin to each other. May Your “Kin-dom” come. Amen
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7:13-14
