Generosity is way more than just giving away your money. Generosity needs to be pervasive in your life. There needs to be a generosity of spirit, a generosity of heart, a generosity in relationships, an emotional generosity.

And yet, in order to be thoroughly generous, it also means being generous with your money. We now get to one of the more famous places in the Bible where Jesus talks about that. This is in his interaction with the rich young ruler. In Jesus’ interaction with the rich young ruler, we are going to learn three things: the danger of money, why money is so dangerous, and how we can escape that danger.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 28, 2012. Series "Generosity: Studies from the Gospel of Luke". Scripture: Luke 18:18-30.
