The Rich Young Ruler
This simple video shows the narration of a suburban wife and her very real struggle to “reconcile the trappings of wealthy america” and her call to morality. She looks at the poor and though she wants to help, knows she should help, struggles to do so because grinding through life is hard enough. The moral of the story goes beyond how we view the poor, but paints a picture of the human condition. That innate desire to focus on ourselves and our needs and comforts. That desire to just get through life. That unfortunate gap between our idealism and our unwillingness (or better – inability) to live up to it. Why is there this gap? Where does this idealism come from? I can relate to this. You?
