Once in a great while, something bizarre happens to me. Once in a while, something convenient happens to me.
When something bizarre and convenient happens, I call it providential. If it’s providential, I can implement whatever is convenient without more work.
On Friday the 13th, 2017, I finished my last of 1,352 video lessons for the Ron Paul Curriculum. That took me 3 1/2 years. That fulfilled an idea I had in 1960.
I had another idea in 1960, a few months earlier. I wanted to find out what the Bible says about economics. I have been working on this ever since.
With the first 56-year-old project finished, this leaves the second.
I took three grandsons to the library on Saturday afternoon, January 14. I took along a copy of my introductory economics book, Inherit the Earth, which I wrote in 1987. At that time, I had finished three volumes of my economic commentary on the Bible. I had 27 volumes to go. (The first volume in 1982 turned into two volumes in 2012, when the commentaries were completed.)
I read Chapter 1 of Inherit the Earth. I skimmed others. I was not satisfied. I was not sure why not. After about 30 minutes, it came to me: the outline for my summation books on Christian economics. I had waited 56 years for this. It is crucial for finishing my other lifetime project.
It seemed obvious as soon as I thought of it. It took about an hour to fill it in.
I did not suffer even one hour of mental groping. But it took 56 years to get to that crucial 30 minutes.
