Saint Augustine quote of the week

“God crowns his own gifts in us.”

This was quoted by our new assistant pastor in his sermon this week.  It was a saying of Augustine’s that I hadn’t heard before.  I really like it, and will be spending some time this week contemplating what he meant by this.  Would be interested in hearing how others interpret this.

  1. Hi Kathryn. I reread the quote, and here it is in its full form: “It is His own gifts that God crowns, not your merits.”
