True trickle-down

By Tom Siebert

Trickle-down economics is predicated on the theory that if the wealthy are given tax incentives, they will create jobs so that the less affluent can provide for themselves and their families. To the ancient Israelites, trickle-down was not theoretical but theo-reality. In Exodus 16:4, God said to Moses: “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day.” God’s economy is still flourishing today. As the apostle Paul promised: “My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
