Eternal implications of 3 universal currencies

Author Josh Kaufman has identified three universal currencies:
In every negotiation, there are 3 Universal Currencies on the table:
  • Resources. Tangible items like money, oil, etc.
  • Time. The universal limit of capacity.
  • Flexibility. The cost of not doing something else, which is a very real Opportunity Cost
Focus on the appropriate trade-offs between the parties to find Common Ground in these Currencies. By mixing these currencies in different ways, it's easier to reach an agreement that the parties can agree with.
What might an eternal perspective on these things look like?

Resources are those tangible, temporary things which, if used to build on the foundation of Jesus Christ, produce eternal results.

Time is limited. “Teach us to number our days so that we may have a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

Tradeoffs are a thing. “Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God” (1 Corinthians 15:34).
