Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn
"There is a fundamental connection between our spiritual lives and how we think about and handle money."
Luke 19:8-9 Zacchaeus gave his possessions to the poor and paid back what he owed... Jesus said salvation came to him.
Mark 12:44 Poor widow gives two small coins and is praised by Jesus.
Luke 12:20 (Right before the widow story) A rich man spent all his wealth on himself and Jesus called him a 'fool'.
Consider the the costs-to-benefits ratio. (Pg 11)
Matthew 6:19-21 Where your treasure is...
"Live according to how you give. Don't give according to how you live."
