How You Do It Makes a Difference

From today's lectionary:
As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life. (1 Timothy 6)
There is a world of difference in asking the rich to do good--and them choosing to do it--than in making them do good.
