Money and Honey. Milk and Wine.
Think about it. What would the absence of, deformation of, or great abundance of any of these items indicate?
Think about this with respect to the phrase "a land flowing with milk and honey."
What does that mean? What do you have to have in order to have a land flowing with milk and honey? If there's a land without such what would be/is the nature of that land?
What of money? When is it's use virtuous? Evil? When is it relevant? When is it not? You can't eat it. There are clearly times in history where no matter how much of it you had it would do you no good. Yet there are other times when it would make some of the most substantive differances anything outside us can make on us and our world.
What's harder to endure? Too much of the above? Too little? Just the right amount? Must we endure variations in their volumes to appreciate them and the role they play in our lives?
