sunday quote

On His own side of the covenant, God declares himself to be Providence, the Great Good Giver....

On our side of the covenant, God asks merely that we obey. This isn't considered payment for his gifts; nothing from a finite creature could match the Infinite Creator's bounty. Obedience, rather, is free and willing, evidence that we acknowledge God to be God, wise and good, choosing ever the best for his children... Obedience, then, is worship. Obedience is the action and the expression of our love for him. It is how we love him.

- Walter Wangerin Jr. from Mourning Into Dancing
