Generosity in quotes: David Lose

“Absent law, it’s each person for him or herself, but when we receive the law as God’s gift to help us live into God’s dream of abundant life for all, we recognize that we are most faithful to the law when we use it to help and protect each other, not insist on it for its own sake or for personal again. And suddenly, rather than looking out for ourselves, we have a whole community of people looking out for us, even as we look out for all others.”
