Generosity in quotes: Ed Markquart

“Our human problem, so it seems to me, is to have a ‘little bit’ of God’s power of compassion, when we need a whole lot of God’s inner gentle love for those who are suffering around us—with dementia, multiple sclerosis, the list goes on and on. We need a double portion of Christ’s selfless love for those who are hurting. Our best inheritance is not monetary wealth or good genes, but the sensitivity of genuine compassion for others.”
