True, everything we have comes from our Father, our ability, our industry, our technical know-how. But when we use it without him, when we treat it as paid-out capital which we can use as we please, it decays in our hands.
--Helmut Thielicke, The Waiting Father: Sermons on the Parables of Jesus (trans. John Doberstein; Harper & Row, 1959), 23
