Most of us don't think we're rich. We think that since we worry about paying bills, and wonder how we'll pay for large expenses that we're not wealthy, we're only average. We say to ourselves, "If I had just a little bit more, then I'd feel less anxious about my situation." However, the reality is that even millionaires worry, and wish for more. There's no end to "having enough." What we need is a shift in our perception about wealth.
In How to Be Rich, Andy Stanley provides considerable food for thought as he seeks to change your mind about your resources. It's not about how much you have, it's about what you do with what you have. Exploring 1 Timothy 6:8, "Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share," Stanley challenges Christians to recover the heart of generosity. Just as the early Christians were known for their radical charity long ago, we too can demonstrate the love of Christ in sharing our abundance with a world who will take notice.
