Hello, People of Purpose!
This is Ruby’s second appearance on the podcast. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to her debut please check out The Lies Anger Told, The Podcast
In today’s audio drama, we discuss scarcity, which is the belief in a limited supply of anything, food, water, money, resources. Scarcity extends to everything time, beauty, love, attention, rest, space, happiness, experiences, and connections. There is never enough, especially the want of provisions for the support of life. It is a failure, and it is a shortage, it is a deficit. Scarcity separates us and not only emits anger but is fueled by the question: is more for you, less for me?
In Anger and the Flames of Scarcity, the Audio Drama, Ruby shares a story riddled with the causes of her scarcity mindset. While she was a wealthy businesswoman, she suffered from isolation. Thus fueling her bitterness, and Ruby was unable to form healthy relationships with others. Ruby’s emotions manifested themselves physically as time passed, limiting her God-given purpose.
We are presented with an example of improper behavior. Suspicion, gossip, fault-finding, and doubt have no room in our plans. Read Jeremiah 5:23-25 and let the Holy Word guide your thoughts.
As you listen to Anger and the Flames of Scarcity, I pray you will journal and keep your Bible close. As you react, think about what you are feeling and use the Bible concordance to look up that specific emotion. What does the Bible say about how you’re responding?
Scriptures in this episode:
James 1:19-21, Jeremiah 5:23-25
- Do I give it to get it? Am I manipulative, or are there conditions attached to the gift?
- Am I stressed and unmotivated? Am I easily tempted?
- When it comes to material goods, can I resist time-sensitive super bargains?
- Do I crash diet and then follow up by binge eating?
- Do I refer to myself in a negative light and fear rejection?
