Generosity in quotes

“In following Jesus, we begin by letting go of all those things that place a prior hold on our affections. Relationships, possessions, privilege and position and ease give way to God’s call. Dietrich Bonhoeffer once famously wrote, ‘Christ never calls a man, but he bids him come and die.’

And so we struggle in our letting go and lifting up, to be set free from all those things that would hold us back, in order to cling to the one that would lead us forward.”

Martin Ericson, pastor of the Como Park Lutheran Church, St. Paul, MN, from Luther Seminary’s  God Pause daily devotion, September 13, 2012
