Doctrine and Covenants 104:15-16

"And it is my purpose to provide for my saints, for all things are mine.
But it must needs be done in mine own way; and behold this is the way that I, the Lord, have decreed to provide for my saints, that the poor shall be exalted, in that the rich are made low."
Doctrine and Covenants 104:15-16

I think this is interesting. It's easy to see the inequities in life... they are all around us. And, as with other problems we sometimes think that God should do something about it... fix it, or snap his fingers and make it disappear. :) I'm human too... I know we all wish that from time to time. But we see again that there is purpose in everything, and God does want the inequities remedied... by us. He wants us to share our abundance with the people that don't have enough.... till it becomes like another scripture we looked at recently, and there is no rich or poor, bond or free... but everyone is one. Do we really think that we can get there without personal effort? I think we dream it sometimes, but down deep we know that we need to learn it in order for it to last. God asks for a lot of things... and this isn't as hard as some of the others... like maybe loving our enemies, or being perfect. :) So, let's try it. Today, let's find a way to share our abundance with someone who needs it. Maybe we have to put off something that we wanted... but is that important compared to someone else's need? Let's start making God's plan of balancing work... and as we do it, we'll be blessed, and able to adjust the balance more. :)
