Scarcity or Abundance? – 30 Days of Liberation: Day 3

As the Seder begins, we hold up matzah and say, “This is the bread of affliction that our ancestors ate in Egypt. All who are hungry, come and eat!” In this brief passage, we show the outcomes of two world-views: scarcity and abundance. Pharaoh oppresses the Israelites because he sees scarcity, fearing too many people and not enough resources. This view can lead to terror and affliction. Abundance, the idea that there is more than enough to go around if justly distributed, enables love, kindness, and cooperation We can choose how to see our world, and what kind of person that will make us.
