Maintaining Your Constituency?

What would we think of doctors who work to keep people sick so that the doctors’ services are required?

What would we think of auto mechanics who sabotaged vehicles to ensure more business?

What would we think of politicians who believed in producing more poor people so their policy prescriptions would keep them in power longer?

I abhor the practice of keeping people dependent and impaired – whether for my own gain or for the gain of others. I aim to work myself out of a job, whether it’s as a teacher, imparting such a hunger for learning that I’m no longer needed. Or as a pastor, imparting such a hunger for God that sinners’ love for God crowds out their enjoyment of sin to such a degree that I’m no longer needed.
