“Today we see our own slender resources, our poverty in fact; but this is undoubtedly the punishment we deserve, as the reward for our ingratitude. For God’s riches are not exhausted, nor has His liberality grown less; but we are n to worthy of His largess, or capable of receiving all that He generously gives.”
John Calvin, The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians, p. 305
