“I, Smartphone” – No one knows how to make a smartphone, and yet they exist. How? Watch the video…

This 4 minute video by the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics is a spin-off of Leonard Read’s essay “I, Pencil.” It’s a wonderful presentation of the fact that as we labor for our daily bread, we contribute to the well-being of the entire human race; in God’s providence so many disparate functions are necessary for the economy to work – and work it does, as He sustains us and our labors and directs our paths together. Don’t miss the Read quote at the end of the video: “Since only God can make a tree, I insist that only God can make me. Man can no more direct these millions of know-hows to bring me into being than he can put molecules together to create a tree.”
