"The essential truth about human beings is that we’re made for relationship. This is because we are created in the image of a triune God who exists in blissful, loving friendship: Father, Son and Holy Spirit in an eternal dance of joy together. God’s desire is to bring us into that glad dance, into that intimate fellowship. He created us for that loving relationship, and his Son died to secure our way back into it after we rejected it."

In our search for economic principles in the Bible, we need to begin with the story of Creation found in the first two chapters of Genesis. Here we see God’s normative intentions for life. We see life as “the way it ought to be.” Man is free from sin, living out his high calling as God’s vice regent in a creation that is “very good.” http://ow.ly/5m8P30dh55K

"God did not create a static world for us to idly enjoy. '...He made us to take part in that, enjoy it, and spread his image over all creation.' Work and productive activity are not optional for the Christian man or woman, nor are they simply necessary evils. Work is fundamental to our calling as human beings."

New volume on Kuyper: “Christ’s kingdom is not an earthly kingdom, and yet it is (also) a kingdom on earth that interacts with all of reality, inside as well as outside the church,” explains Govert Buijs in the volume’s introduction. “So what Kuyper sets out to develop is a full-orbed ‘theology of everyday life,’ a theology of incarnation of Christ’s kingship, ranging from politics to philanthropy, from the family to public opinion and the media, from civil society to academia, from economics to the arts.” Via Acton Institute - http://ow.ly/sP1230cHR5N
