The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn Review
God is good, and He has richly blessed all of His children. The challenge for us is to make sure that we are being a blessing with the blessings that God has entrusted to us. In these hard economic times facing the church, we all need a little encouragement to make sure that we are giving by faith and giving faithfully. Desiring to give generously is good so long as we actually do give as generously as we can. Alcorn reminds the reader that this is what the Bible teaches, "just as the readiness to desire it, so there may be also the completion of it by your ability," 2 Cor 8:11. Yet this is exactly where we all need a little help and encouragement, and Randy Alcorn in his The Treasure Principle gives not a little but a lot. So if you need a little motivation to give, let Randy Alcorn show you Jesus' "treasure principle." He explains that everything that we store up on earth, we'll lose, and everything we invest in Christ's kingdom will accrue for us a thousand-fold dividend that we can enjoy for eternity. The church needs more wise investors who give to bless and not to store up treasures on earth. I strongly recommend the wise biblical counsel of Alcorn’s simple to read and life-transformational book as he unlocks Jesus' “treasure principle.” May God bless us free us from the snare of materialism and raise up more saints who have a passion to meet needs now and who have an eye fixed on future glory.
