|It can buy you oh-so-much!|
In their defense, I did see some things that I have a slight obsession over - that is, glass jars. Why am I in love with glass jars? Not sure, but, alas, I am. Maybe so I can store some kombucha in there...mmm...kombucha...be right back...
Aahh, kombucha. Now where was I? Ah yes, glass jars... No, poison. Yes.
In the words of Solomon, (repudiated to be the wisest man who has ever lived!) collected in the book we call Proverbs, he says, "Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished." (Proverbs 17:5) and "Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty." (Proverbs 22:16) Now, I'm not all about going crazy and turning the Gospel (translation: good news) into a social justice issue here, I'm just saying I think there's something messed up going on.
Now, I'm not going to have a fit on you if you want to go to the dollar store, I'm just here to encourage you to think about things. Does this issue bother you? Do you think it's anyone's choice to shop there if they want to or not, so if they want to use that stuff, that's their problem and we shouldn't even worry about it? You tell me.
Something to think about, perhaps.
And now, back to the kombucha.
Peace, love and kombucha,
