The 80/20 rule says that 20% of what you spend (your resources, time, etc.) will create 80% of the value.
In church 20% usually do 80% of the volunteering. And in work, 20% of your products typically bring in about 80% of the revenue.
It’s so common in fact that we forget that it’s entirely wrong.
At least, that is, when it comes to how we prescribe value to each other.
In Matthew 18, Jesus talks about a different ratio. 99:1. Where 1 is worth as much as 99.
Which, of course, we know is just charity.
The 99 can’t be worth the same as the 1. That would never work.
Until, of course, you’re the 1.
And then that changes everything.
