Common Grace

Out of of the lavishness displayed in the marvelous variety and richness of creation itself, God continues to pour out his common blessings on all people. . . . He is an inexhaustible fountain of loving generosity. Therefore, we neither hoard possessions as if God’s gifts were scarce nor deny ourselves good pleasures as if God were stingy.

—Michael Horton, Pilgrim Theology: Core Doctrines for Christian Disciples, 114
