But, biblically, the problem isn’t free enterprise; it is lack of contentment. And this is an issue of the heart that no law can remedy. Paul put the remedy this way in 1 Timothy 6:6, “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”

True godliness brings contentment, and here is a wealth that satisfies. As Solomon said, “Those who attain to such wisdom will find it better than rubies, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.”
