The best quote I've read in a long time:
"One purchases immortality through generosity; and, by giving the perishing things of the world, receives in exchange for these an eternal mansion in the heavens! Rush to this market, if you are wise, O rich man! If need be, sail around the whole world."
Sink this into me.
My generosity should be for those across the seas and across the table.
Do my friends think I'm generous?
I'm scared of the answer.
"God, teach me to rise by descending."
