The Bible views all of life as an integrated whole. On this basis, the Christian view of a full life is a life where the person’s ability to realize their full potential in all aspects of life – meaningful work, physical prosperity, enriching individual and community relationships and a deepening relationship with God. God who created us is interested in every aspect of life and wishes us to derive the greatest possible enjoyment in all dimensions of our lives.
This view of life allows us to establish a frame of reference to guide our thinking about the economy, understood broadly as the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. It helps guide personal economic decisions, and also provides a framework to help us make the best decisions about economic policy at a community, national and international level.
