What gives something value?
· Posted by Walking Worthy at 16:05
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us; that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain to cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated."
Thomas Paine (1737-1809)- The American Crisis
So here's the question: is it true that "it is dearness only that gives everything its value"? What does the Bible say? And, is there truth in what Paine says?
If you have any thought's we would be interested to hear them. Comment below...
