The divine economy in unstable times

Good seems to be tied to human effort. We work hard to “earn a living”—earn an income, which in turn enables us to buy what we need to live. So it seems that through our own efforts good things flow into our lives. 

But this logic has a troubling flip side: If something changes humanly, the flow of good can appear to be interrupted, even stopped. And taken to its ultimate, if there’s a big change, a macro change that affects things nationally or globally, the entire network of good can seem to be disrupted, resulting in massive human hardship.
