Poverty through disconnection

Our lives are revolved around people and our environment. We want and actually crave to stay connected. The social media, newspapers, radio, television, entertainment industry, schools, organizations, religions and governments all exist to keep people connected. We crave connectivity. It enhances our lives and most of the time brightens our day.

Being connected allows an individual to properly trade. Trading gives an individual the ability to get funding. Without funding we can’t survive. Connection leads to security and prosperity.

The most important connection that many people take for granted is the connection with family. Most of us need support. We can get support from friends, peers and organizations but there is nothing stronger than the support from family. However, a family can’t support us if we are disconnected. Vanity, greed and the unwillingness to apologize and forgive broke and keep families apart.

The security and prosperity of every creature on earth is based on the ability to bond and stay connected. Disconnection leads to so many negative results. Poverty and death (suicide and starvation) are the most prominent negative effects. Most people lose hope when they are disconnected. Nations and organizations fall apart when disconnection sets in.

Do not underestimate the power of a handshake, an eye-contact or a casual conversation. These are the building blocks of a powerful relationship. God created us. He did not create you to be alone. He created you to be with us. Anyone can climb out of the pit of poverty if he/she grabs onto the lifeline of relationships.

    Someone asked me. How does your article relate with the verse in the bible, Matthew 5:3: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”?

    Answer: Being poor is never a good idea. Being humble is not being poor. Humility is the opposite of Vanity. No matter how you slice it, poor is poor.

    Don’t try to add extra meaning to the word “blessed”. When referred to the poor, it was meant to uplift their spirits and not for others to imitate their stature.

    That saying has been passed on down through the generations: “God bless you.”

    I believe in Jesus Christ. But accept the facts, Jesus was not a poor man. He was a rich contractor. He had the funds to support his apostles. Jesus preached prosperity (corporeal and spiritual) with accountability.
