Voices: Eugene Peterson on Providence

I was going to share the quote below in tomorrow’s sermon, but it ended up on the cutting room floor.

“Providence, God’s goodness and blessing that keeps us alive, is often confused with God’s providing for us whatever we think we want or need.” — Eugene Peterson [1] 

This is well put, I would only add that at the end of this life (whenever that comes), God’s providence sees us through death and out the other side.
