Remembered this quote, and tracked it down....

"It's easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than to think your way into a new way of acting."
– Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity
If more Christians were like this, I would have a lot more respect for organised religion.

Applying Jesus’ Economics
Habitat’s economic philosophy is based upon what Fuller calls the “economics of Jesus.” The no-profit, no-interest components of the program come from a passage in the Bible (Exodus 22:25) that says those lending money to the poor should not act as a creditor and charge interest.
