Want to make a difference in the church? Give!

And give with a joyful heart. Why? Well, because God commands it. But, more importantly, and, as this book very clearly and articulately points out, because Jesus decreed that we should give in order to recieve. It is a promise. Jesus, according to Mr. Tripp, spoke more about money and finances than he did about heaven and hell combined; I have no means to verifying this readily available, but it seems a rather easily believable statement. We are all self-absorbed, ego-centric creatures who seek to further our own agendas. But what can happen when you place others first?

Christ not only demanded that we give, but he said that, when we do, we build a treasure greater than any can imagine; in heaven. So, there's the catch, if you can dare to call it such; do you seek instant or long-term gratification, immediate reward or eternal earnings? Jesus promised reward to those who give. And, in all honesty, the fact that we are saved by God's grace is amazing enough. Yet, here we have the Lord's promise that he will further bless us when we give.

And this is not just another book that attempts to guilt you in to tithing, although, that is obviously a decree of the Lord as well. Rather, this book points out that we should give; time, experience, posessions. We should do so gladly; at work, at home, on the streets, in church, wherever we may see that someone is in need. The gift is to God and what God chooses to do, or to allow the recipient to do with the gift is of no concern to you, the giver. God keeps record and will reward those who give.

Americans today are so comfortable with their minimum giving amounts that they miss out on the great joy you can receive from giving more to the Lord! This book is a great challenge to any Christian at any level to get out of the rut of giving out of requirment. This book is well worth the 7.99USD. Read it and live it out!

Format: Paperback
The overall message of this book is how to unlock the secret of joyful giving. Alcorn challenges individual believers to examine their freewill giving. He urges believers to examine their motives and measure of giving as a barometer of their spiritual life today and as to what is being established in heaven. Alcorn's singular goal is that believers truly trust God and obediently evaluate how they are spending or using the monies that God has entrusted us with. He challenges individual believers to examine what their current attitude to God, giving, and money is now and to realign their thinking with five (5) treasure principles.

I found this book to be a very riveting read. I could not put it down. This book is a very easy read and can be read in one or two settings. Alcorn writes with clarity and holds your attention very well. However, to receive the maximum benefit of this book I suggest that one should read it slow and savor the various truths and principles that are presented. This book was challenging and inspirational. It caused me to rethink how I view the privilege of giving. This book forces the reader to think through each principle personally.

Alcorn backs his points with Scripture in an accurate and stimulating fashion. I would highly recommend this book to every Elder, church leader and every believer.

I loved the Treasure Principle book but didn't like the study guide. I didn't think it followed the book closely enough and some of the questions are the kind that are too simple to require an answer.

Excellent resource on the Biblical principle of giving. Our church gave this book away several years ago as a part of a sermon series. Very easy read, just 120 small pages. It should be read by every Christian!

This short book hits real Biblical principles of giving, it is good for a small group study. The accompanying video helps to flesh it out. You won't feel guilty, you will feel that you can give more.
