In the first (Revelations 3:20), Jesus promises heaven to those "open" to his message:
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.Although economists do not claim divinity, they share one characteristic with Jesus -- the desire to help those willing to accept it.
The second (from II Kings 20:1) reflects the importance of good management:
In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.I interpret this to mean that one must get one's house in order before asking for others' money or water.
Do you have any verses from the Bible (or other religions) to share?
Bottom Line: Water managers can get to heaven, but they must be open enough to consider ideas from outside and disciplined enough to make changes to themselves before asking for changes of others.
