Generosity in quotes

“The people of God know something that others don’t. They know that their worth comes from God and not from money — not from money earned, hoarded, spent to purchase things, or used to exercise power. Once people see this truth, they can see that they have things going for them, for they are gifted with an abundance of skills and stories, with opportunities for love and service, and with one another. The people of God know that they have things money cannot buy; they know they are rich in things of the soul.”

James Hudnut-Beumler, Anne Potter Wilson Distinguished Professor of American Religious History at Vanderbilt University and dean of the Divinity School, from Generous Saints: Congregations Rethinking Ethics and Money (The Alban Institute)
