Bonhoeffer Quote

“If we want to understand God’s goodness in God’s gifts, then we must think of them as a responsibility we bear for our brothers and sisters.  Let none say:  God has blessed us with money and possessions, and then live as if they and their God were alone in the world.”  –216 Dietrich Bonhoeffer, God’s loving Care and Human Suffering (Harvest Festival, Berlin October 4, 1931)

If you haven’t read it yet, read Eric Metaxas’ biography Bonhoeffer.  It is excellent.
