Dr. Alveda King: The Economy Is Temporary, Life Is Eternal

Date: October 9, 2008

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today said that people cannot lose sight of moral priorities in the face of economic stress.

“No doubt, these are troubled times,” said Dr. King, “but it’s in troubled times that we especially need to remember what’s important. What the current economic meltdown should teach us is that our hope is not in the things of this earth, but in God.”

“If financial pressures cause us to stop loving our neighbors, to think only of ourselves, we have lost much more than money,” added Dr. King. “If we stop giving to charity, cease donating our time to help others, or, in the extreme, abort a baby for financial reasons, we literally sacrifice the eternal for the temporary.”

“Ultimately, what bring us the greatest rewards or the worst scars are the choices we make that have spiritual consequences,” said Dr. King. “In the end, we don’t look back at our lives and think of refinanced mortgages or stock trades, but of those we loved. Let us trust God and love Him by loving others in good times and bad. As my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘The time is always right to do what is right.’”
