“I love to give charity, but I don’t want to be charity. This is why I have so much trouble with grace.
‘Don you are not above the charity of God.’ In that instant he revealed my motives were not noble, they were prideful.
It wasn’t that I cared about my friends more than myself; it was that I believed I was above the grace of God.
Like Rick, I am too prideful to accept the grace of God. It isn’t that I want to earn my own way to give something to God, it’s that I want to earn my own way so I won’t be charity.”
