More on Magnanimity

Doesn't it make sense that the magnanimous man is generous with his giftedness? I mean, the "great man" will know that he is "great" and the Christian "great man" will know that his "greatness" is a gift from God. God is generous with his gifts, and the gifted Christian probably believes he ought also to be generous with what he has received. In other words, God is the original source of magnanimity, and all magnanimity derives from his magnanimity. By the same token, if God gives, and loses nothing in the giving, the magnanimous man, who gives of the abundance that he has received, also loses nothing.

God's magnanimity will not be outdone...
