Some of the most helpful points were the part on giving, not just money, but of time. It showed a truly Christian way to live. Also, living life with enthusiasm was helpful. The part about self image was helpful, after all, we can't love our neighbor if we don't love ourselves.
A lot of work went into this book. It is quite an accomplishment and the first book I've read by this author (though I watch his television broadcasts).
I must admit that I have trouble understanding people (such as a few of the negative reviewers) who have a problem seeing God as a benevolent Father who wants to bless us with good things! Jesus often referred to God's loving generosity, and He told us to "Ask and you shall receive." He also told us that as a person thinks, so shall they be.
Even in the Old Testament God promises: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 NIV.
Of course I agree that our focus should not be ONLY on material success, wealth or possessions, but there is nothing wrong with having these as long as one keeps a balance and keeps God and spirituality as a priority. Furthermore, these principles, which have been espoused by many people, including Dr. Norman Vincent Peale ("The Power of Positive Thinking") really DO work! I can personally attest to that. Most of my goals and dreams have come to pass, with God's help, and with the ones that didn't, God gave me something better. God also often answers our prayers in a way we don't expect...which is always better than our own limited human thinking, which is why you need to keep an open mind and heart when praying for something.
I think a lot of times people resent being told that God wants them to have fruitful, abundant lives b/c perhaps they are too lazy to put forth the effort involved. God will help us, but we have to help ourselves. So it's easier to just say that "God wants me to be poor/sick/unsuccessful, etc." These same people might be jealous that someone like Joel Osteen is living a meaningful, useful and successful life. Get over it! I find that people like Joel Osteen and other motivational/ inspirational speakers are just what I need sometimes to get me moving towards my goals...always on the condition that it is God's will for my life and good for me. If not, I have faith that God will give me something even better!
