"But you can't live on that small a wage." Right. Guess what? Working all day and having nothing to show for it is motivation to start working smarter. This is as old as Solomon. "The laborer's appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on." Proverbs 16:26 NIV. This isn't talking about a lazy man being hungry as Proverbs commonly does. This is talking about a man working hard and still being hungry. This is motivation. Having to provide the basics of food and shelter are the bottom-level motivation that gets people going. Sometimes in our contemporary American culture of luxury and entitlement, we forget the base realities of life.
