Generosity in quotes

“Our challenge is not stewardship — we are very good at math; we know what we can afford. We can calculate what percentage of our hard-earned money we think the church deserves or needs or can get by on. . . Rather, our challenge is about who we are — a people who are a self-emptying people because we are joined to a self-emptying God. Generosity is not a discipline or a spiritual gift; it is part of our character. It is who we become in baptism and who God calls us to be, together, for the further glory of his holy name.”

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