The Power of Thrift

Under the influence of Christian concepts of familistic property, the free market has acted to break up such large aristocratic holdings. The industrious poor eventually buy out the lazy rich, and anyone with thrift can eventually obtain his own garden. Dominion is multiplied (James Jordan, The Law of the Covenant, 133).

A guiding principle is for a poor person to be industrious and get to a point in their life where they consume less than they produce. When you consume less than you produce dominion is multiplied. The Church needs to teach the poor to get dominion for Jesus by being industrious in the midst of their poverty.
