Generosity in quotes

“Generosity is not a choice we make, not a calculation in which we weigh what we are giving up against what we gain in order to make ourselves available to the work of God’s kingdom. It is a mark of our identity in Christ. When we are baptized into the one who is self-emptying we take on the self-emptying generosity for ourselves. It becomes who we are, not what we do. The people of this God, known to us in the self-emptying Christ, are self-emptying people. It is a mark of our union to Christ, who himself laid down his divine glory and became poor for us so that we might know God’s love and grace and redemption.”

Douglass Key, pastor of the Clover (SC) Presbyterian Church, from “Living the Word” in Christian Century magazine.
