Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 1 (day three)
“…the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.”  We live in the fear that everything is a zero sum game: Whatever we give away means that much less for ourselves–be it money, possessions, or affection.  The concept of “shortage” doesn’t have a place in the economy of God, though.  The universe he has made, and the community he has birthed, knows nothing of scarcity.  One of the results of taking seriously his lavishness is that we, too, become people who lavish what we have on one another without fearing that we will be left with nothing.
