Scarcity

>One of the things I have to do is prepare something (for clergy) on support networks available. While doing this preparation I have been thinking about scarcity and abundance in relation to God. I wonder whether the question about support networks comes from the world f scarcity – in the sense that there aren’t (we believe) supports available to us and therefore we have to go looking for them.
At the heart of the scripture is the “sabbath principle” which is a principle that denies scarcity. Moses taught the sabbath principle to people who – like everyone else – would have made more (bricks/bread whatever), yet they had to have the 7th day off – in the image of God and also trusting that there was enough time and that their lives were made and completed by God.
