Biblical View

 

Before we had currency as we do today, people traded skills, and bartering was much more common than it is today. The value of the gifts and talents of others was appreciated to a greater extent. For convenience, gold, silver, or other items of value came to represent the value placed on a person's work. This made trade much easier. In the Bible, we see gold, silver, livestock, clothing, certain spices etc. as an indication of wealth. An economy that has value based money is a biblical idea.

 

The Bible also shows us God's plan for prosperity. First of course is to follow His commands as we see in Deuteronomy 28. We see tithing as another principle He established as early as the Garden of Eden. We see the principle of sowing and reaping, along with being diligent to work hard, or not eat. (2 Corinthians 9:6-12, 2 Thessalonians 3:10). We see the Lord honoring those who understand the principles of increase, not being afraid to take a risk or bury their talents. (Matthew 25:14-30). Using our God-given gifts to produce something of value to ourselves, our family, and our community, is God's economic plan. This is called work. A country which allows it's people the freedom to work in the field of their choice, be creative, and not be over-burdened with tax and restrictions, will contain the highest standard of living.
