Controlled by Fear

I recently finished Tim Keller’s book, King’s Cross, and came across this quote which reminded me of my story about generosity versus skepticism.

People will say, “How can you spend your money like that? How can you let that career opportunity go by? How can you be involved with such a needy person when you know she will probably take advantage of you?” A Christian can respond, “It’s not the end of the world if somebody takes advantage of me, or if my money is gone, or if my career doesn’t develop as I might like. I’m not controlled by that fear anymore.” You are replacing the kingdom of this world with the kingdom of God.
