Unequal Distribution

[God] has, though, apportioned to His free and rational creatures unequally in order [1] that their understanding and their freedom [free choices] might be clearly seen; [2] that men might realize their dependence on one another; [3] and that they might, by their wise use of what God has lent them, work toward their own salvation and that of their brethren.
St. Nicholai Velimirovic, Homily for the Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost.

Note that God has lent human beings all that they seem to possess.  Even the air we breathe.  Naked we come into the world, naked we leave; it is a gift from God always to remember this.
