What makes the world go around?

I have heard people say that “money makes the world go around”. Early on, Jesus’ disciples probably thought the same.

By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late. [36] Send the people away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.” [37] But he answered, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “That would take more than half a year’s wages! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?” [38] “How many loaves do you have?” he asked. “Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five—and two fish.”

Mark 6:35-38 NIV

Jesus takes the food they have and multiplies that. Money isn’t central to the church to do our work. All of our work can be done without money. Next question: What is the church’s work.
