I Want To Be A Liberal
This is from the NIV. The King James Version reads like this...
Isaiah 32:8 But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.
8But the liberal deviseth liberal things;
and by liberal things shall he stand.
I thought that was very interesting. Most of the time liberal has a negative connotation in our culture, but here it has a very positive one. I think it is good to do things nobly, and probably the point here is that the noble or "liberal" person is known for their generosity and dealing with integrity. In that sense, I think we all should desire to be liberal.
