Treasure Principles

This week I was given a copy of Randy Alcorn's The Treasure Principle, a book that is deep and rich in regards to giving and generosity in the life of a believer. I highly recommend the book and thought that it was worth sharing the Treasure Principle Keys that Alcorn presents in the book. Here are the principles:

Treasure Principle Keys
God owns everything. I'm His money manager.
We are the managers of the assets God has entrusted-not given-to us.

My heart always goes where I put God's money.
Watch what happens when you reallocate your money from temporal things to eternal things.

Heaven, not earth, is my home.
We are citizens of "a better country-a heavenly one"
(Hebrews 11:16)

I should live not for the dot but for the line.
From the dot-our present life on earth-extends a line that goes on forever, which is eternity in heaven.

Giving is the only antidote to materalism.
Giving is a joyful surrender to a greater person and a greater agenda. It dethrones me and exalts Him.

God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.
God gives us more money than we need so we can give-generously.
