strength in numbers

Today's thought of the day. A cell is great, but an organ is better. "For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20.

I was on this walmart site wondering what can be done about labor issues, and the whole notion of how can us as Christians be responsible in the coorporate world and not let these sort of things result from the natural tendencies of growth/revenue/market share. Case in point, google. We love it, we wish we invented it, and now we wish to own it. But can commandment number 6 "You can make money without doing evil." resist the pressures of shareholder greed when it goes public? Just because the common user might agree with it, would you buy a share and continue to uphold these values?

Well I don't specifically believe the verse above refers to praying exclusively, it is important to let our voice be heard as one body. Not in terms of criticism, or philosophical arguments of discussion, but in terms of action and ways that actually make a difference. Sign a petition, vote, share with others how they can help one another, there are plenty of ways!
