I've read this book 2X: Treasure Principle - summary

I've read this book twice. I've preached through 2 series using it considerably. Our family has applied it to how we handle money. Wow, you've got to read this little book!
Summary

Bestselling author Randy Alcorn introduced readers to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity with the release of the original The Treasure Principlein 2001. Now the revision to the compact, perennial bestseller includes a provocative new concluding chapter depicting God asking a believer questions about his stewardship over material resources. Readers are moved from the realms of thoughtful Bible exposition into the highly personal arena of everyday life. Because when Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” He intended that they discover an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and His children maximum pleasure. Discover a joy more precious than gold!  Priceless treasure is within your reach. And with it, liberating joy.  In Randy Alcorn ’s The Treasure Principle, you’ll unearth a radical teaching of Jesus—a secret wrapped up in giving. Once you discover this secret, life will never look the same. And you won’t want it to!  Pull Out Section:  Do it. Ask God what’s on your mind….  Open my eyes, Father. What am I holding on to that’s robbing me of present joy and future reward?  Discover the all-new prayer guide inside!
