The market is about conquest. It is about linear time that points with verve and energy to some clearly demarked objective. The market is aggressive, innovative, entrepreneurial, clever, always on the move wanting more and different and the exciting.
The covenant is about occupation. It is about cyclical time that recognizes periodicity and the waxing and waning of ordinary processes. It is prudent, selfless, respectful, wise, at peace with the rewards of the underlying values of life.
They belong together, the market and the covenant, but in the end the covenant must rule.
