Shared Rewards – Part I

Tim Weinhold of Eventide Funds, wrote a well-researched essay on the “Wisdom of Shared Rewards.” He contends that, biblically, workers deserve to share in the profits that come from their productivity.

Until the mid-1970s, corporations existed to serve customers, employees, communities, and shareholders, and worker’s pay was closely tied with increased productivity.

In the late 1970s the corporate philosophy changed. Enhancing shareholder wealth became the focus of business, leaving workers poorer and shareholders wealthier. This led to today’s growing income disparity and a shrinking middle class.

Paul wrote about the wealthy in 1 Timothy 6:18, “Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share.”

Imagine if Christians led us back to the biblical design of sharing rewards with those who help produce them.
