Here is an older post by Trevin Wax as he ponders a debate between James MacDonald and David Platt on sacrifice and generosity.
Trevin, who grew up in Romania, speaks of his personal journey in five headings:
1. Culture Shock at Poverty
2. Culture Shock at Wealth
3. Frustration with Materialism
4. Repentance for my Patronizing Attitude
5. Repentance for my Judgmental Attitude
