Jon (liao), I think your point is correct.

Although I don’t think that Calvinists represent that! :]

“However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts”

These quotes are of John Calvin.

He expected blessings too! I’m sure he read and believed the Biblical accounts of Abraham, Solomon (the good years), and many more people who were blessed materially by God. His expectations of blessings were underneath the submission to Christ’s lordship and self-denial (Matthew 16).
“All the blessings we enjoy are Divine deposits, committed to our trust on this condition, that they should be dispensed for the benefit of our neighbors”

Got riches? Use it for the glory and expansion of the Lord’s kingdom! Nothing wrong with riches, … just don’t put faith in it (prov 11). We are to hate our life in this world (John 12) and the sinful pleasures therein, praise God for the righteouss blessings and pleasures he gives us, and give to the poor, widows, orphans, etc.

Thanks God!
