Faith in Public Policy: Limited Resources

I was recently reading a Hoover Institution article (http://www.hoover.org/publications/policy-review/article/6127) by Tod Lindberg. He was writing about the politics of the Beatitudes – what did Jesus’ statements mean for the well-being of the people who heard Him?
The basic point that I have grabbed on to is that Jesus did not/does not opperate in a world of scarcity – too many people chasing after too few goods. Yes, Jesus encountered poverty and disease and hardship, but what Jesus spoke about was abundant.
When Jesus offers the kingdom of heaven to those who embrace the worldview of God, this resource cannot be limited. When we, God’s people, encounter God, we would be wise to remember that He is not limited, even though that is the nature of the world we live in.
