Let this, then, be our rule for benignity and beneficence that whatever God has conferred on us, which enables us to assist our neighbor, we are the stewards of it, and must one day render an account of our stewardship; and that the only right dispensation of what has been committed to us, is that which is regulated by the law of love. thus we shall not always connect the study to promote the advantage of others with a concern for our own private interest, but shall prefer the good of others to our own.
~ John Calvin
