"Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share." —1 Timothy 6:18
Pastor and author Andy Stanley, asks us to imagine the difference we could make if we followed Paul's command in 1 Timothy 6:18: “Do good, be rich in good deeds, and be generous and willing to share.”? Early Christians did. They were known for the extraordinary generosity they displayed. In Be Rich, Stanley challenges today’s Christians to rise to the occasion. To unleash a wave of generosity. To be rich—in a big, big way.
Stanley unmasks our desire to place our hopes in wealth instead of in God. Using Scripture as his base, he then describes the different way Christians can think about using their wealth: the more you give away the richer you become. In his tried and true style, Stanley guides you to this Bible-based, Christ-centered outlook on wealth, viewed through the lens of eternity.
