Principle 5: There is Enough for Everyone

Adult Version: Debts that cannot be paid must be relieved. We demand freedom from servicing the debts we cannot pay.

"This 50th year is sacred—it is a time of freedom and of celebration when everyone will receive back their original property, and slaves will return home to their families."

Leviticus 25:8–13

Questions

I wonder how God provides all of the people and creatures on the Earth enough?

I wonder what it would be like to rest for an entire year? (No school, no work, just hanging out)

I wonder if everyone was able to have a nice home how that would change the world?

I wonder if all the people who were poor were forgiven their debts, how everyone would feel?
