Free of Charge

“If Christians in the United States alone gave 10 percent of their income, the problem of world hunger could be solved. But those of us who have tend to squander and hoard, and what we do pass on is often misappropriated by middlemen. We want God to multiply the loaves and fish to feed the multitudes, as Jesus did in the Gospels. But the Apostle suggested that we’ll be able to feed the multitudes if we’d let God change how we think about the loaves and fish we already have.”

--Miroslav Volf, Free of Charge, page 106.
