Christ and furthered missions and relief and development. work worldwide, I ve received hundreds of letters and e mails detailing. radical choices enduring life changes and greatly multiplied. joy as a result of embracing the truths in this book One. reader wrote I picked up The Treasure Principle and started. reading aloud and the Holy Spirit worked with lightning. speed I had perfect clarity of mission It wasn t about me. A mother e mailed My eleven year old son gets five. dollars per week We taught him that fifty cents was his tithe. He chose to give a dollar After reading The Treasure Prin. ciple I asked If I were to raise your allowance to six dollars. a week how would you use the extra dollar He immedi. ately said I would give two dollars This is just a small part. of what is going on in our household, My favorite letters are from young people such as this.

They express deep thanks to God for the infusion of happi. ness that goes far beyond all expectations, Whether the changes have been sweeping or seemingly. small these readers have experienced what I intended this. book to be mainly about enhanced joy from giving, Honestly at times I ve been overwhelmed by the impact. I m profoundly aware that anything God has done through. The Treasure Principle is a work of grace on His part and to. His glory I know without a doubt that He has used the God. breathed Scripture highlighted throughout the book to joy. fully transform hearts, I m grateful too that all the book royalties have been. and will continue to be given away to further God s king. dom If my wife Nanci and I didn t personally know the. unrivaled joy of giving I wouldn t have been able to write. The Treasure Principle, To revise a work that many people have said changed.
their lives is daunting I am adjusting a book that has traveled. farther and wider than perhaps any work I ve ever written. with the possible exception of Heaven What if my revision. reduces rather than enhances the book s power But by. making clearer some parts that readers occasionally have. misunderstood I hope I ve made it better My prayer is that. the revision which includes the all new chapter Was Jesus. Really Talking About Financial Giving and a Q A sec. tion helps both new and old readers,The Treasure Principle indd 13 5 18 17 1 01 P. xiv PREFACE, I also want to thank again my wonderful wife Nanci. who has walked this path of giving with me Our hearts are. filled with gratefulness to God for all He is and all He has. given We thank Him for all He empowers His people to. give for the good of others for the good of the giver and for. the glory of the ultimate Giver,But who am I and who are my people that we should. be able to give as generously as this Everything comes from. you and we have given you only what comes from your. hand 1 Chronicles 29 14,e Treasure Principle indd 14 5 18 17 1 01 PM. Introduction, All your life you ve been on a treasure hunt You ve been.
searching for a perfect person and a perfect place If you re a. Christian you ve already met that person Jesus And you re. headed to that place Heaven, But there s a problem You re not yet living with Him in. that place, If you ve asked Jesus Christ to forgive your sins He s. rescued you from eternal condemnation and given you new. life Your salvation isn t dependent on anything you have. done or will ever do Rather it s God s gift to you secured by. Christ s death and resurrection This is the Gospel the good. news of happiness Isaiah 52 7 esv the good news of. great joy Luke 2 10 esv, Being saved from your sins is not about you giving to. God it s about God giving to you, If you don t know Him placing your faith in Jesus is the. best choice you can ever make By God s empowering grace. I pray you ll do it soon, However it s possible you already have a relationship.
with Jesus but feel you aren t experiencing the joy God in. tends Maybe you attend church regularly pray and read the. Bible But life can still be drudgery can t it You dutifully.
