“If we give out of love, however, there is ultimately no way in heaven or earth to avoid receiving, and receiving far more than we could possibly give.”

“…the Bible knows nothing of a God who is uninvolved or only marginally involved in sending negative circumstances into people’s lives. As far as the Bible is concerned, God makes the final decision about every situtation that enters people’s lives. God may choose to use intermediate instruments to accomplish these circumstances: other people, weather, even satanic forces. But it is God who personally designs, authorizes, and sets limits on every one of the negative circumstances that strikes people’s lives. This is the worldview of the Bible.”

-Brokenness, Lon Solomon
