Generosity in quotes

“The heart of Christian faith is gratitude. The heart of Christian hope is gratitude. The heart of Christian love is gratitude. The heart of the Christian life is gratitude. That gratitude is rooted in a sense that life is a gift, that life is good, that life is worth living.

God’s goodness is the reason to be generous. That conviction does not come from a Pollyanna view of life, from overlooking the difficulties or pretending they do not exist. That conviction comes from a sense that God gives us what is really important, what really matters, what we really need: the sense that life is worth living, that we are here for a purpose, that we are instruments of a loving God. What a difference that can make each day in how we live this life!”

Ed Taylor, pastor of the First Christian Church, Gibson City, Illinois, from the Ecumenical Stewardship Center’s Companion Resource “More Than Enough”
