Generosity in quotes: Delonte Gholston

“To our downfall, we ignore the voices of the prophets that point to the corruption, bribery, and greed of a people whose faith and appetites have been turned ravenously inward rather than graciously outward. A faith turned ravenously inward is concerned only with our own families, our own fears, our own hopes, “our ministry,” and our own quest for more. A faith turned graciously outward is one concerned with the love of neighbor, the transformation of both the cities and the countryside, and the love of our enemies in the ways of Christ.”
