Generosity can sound simple—just give money away. But since the first century, wealthy Christians have faced the related issues of motivation, materialism, the desire to be productive vs. the desire to be rich, contentment, and stewardship. It’s not a simple equation after all. Randy Alcorn examines I Timothy 6 to illuminate the issues affluent believers have struggled with for centuries.
