Generosity in quotes: Eric Barreto

“Our relationship to the ‘stuff’ of life can still change. Whether such change requires that we sell all and give it to the poor is not entirely evident, though we ought to take seriously that possibility. In the end, we ought to confess that our culture and our contemporary relationship to wealth and possessions are an obstacle to our relationship with God and one another.”

Eric BarettoEric D. Barreto, assistant professor of New Testament at Luther Seminary (St. Paul, MN), from an essay titled “Possessions and the Christian Life in Luke-Acts” in Rethinking Stewardship: Our Culture, Our Theology, Our Practices
