Naomi King (@revnaomi) tweeted a great question recently: “What are your favorite #inspirational quotes about abundance?” Her prompt reminded me of how critical a theology of abundance is to a healthy spirituality. In contrast, a theology of scarcity can spiral into an unhealthy spirituality. A search for the words “abundance” and “scarcity” on my computer turned up the following quotes:
