The secret of joyful giving

What are you holding on to that’s robbing you of joy present joy and future reward?  This is the question Randy Alcorn asks you to reflect on in his book “The Treasure Principle.”  Armed with six principle treasure keys, Alcorn’s book will convict, teach and encourage Christians to evaluate their budget and plan on giving generously and sacrificially.

Alcorn shares some personal life experiences and hard lessons learned in order to challenge readers to come to grips with what they really treasure.  Whether you agree with how he’s lived his life and the choices he has made, the principles he puts forth are scripturally based and make a profound difference in your outlook on giving.  Not until you realize that everything belongs to God and that the earth is not your home will you truly experience the freedom that Christ wants to give to you.  Giving is as much a gift to the giver as it is to the receiver.

Once you unlock the secret of joyful giving share it with others.  This book is a great gift for a graduate, a newlywed, a teenager, a friend, a parent, a child, or anyone on your gift-giving list.  The treasures in this little book are timeless and worth sharing.  Bring joy into someone’s life today by showing them what it means to truly be a joyful giver.
