Happy New Year, everyone! For months I have considered the book to discuss during the first quarter of 2011. I read Randy Alcorn’s The Treasure Principle several years ago (almost a decade now) and was challenged by the presentation of biblical insight concerning money. Considering the financial hardships that my family personally experienced this past year and the fact that most people I know are still in a recession, I thought it would be a good time to assess our financial priorities.
This book is challenging and refreshing, but I also believe it will be extremely beneficial for you, your family members, and friends. Much like our last book discussion of Elisa Morgan’s She Did What She Could, The Treasure Principle is small in size – so you can throw it in your purse and read it in route to any location. It is a quick read, only six chapters at less than ten pages each. The book can be purchased in most book stores for no more than $10, and is available online for $1-2 on several websites. This is a great investment, I say.
For those that are new to A Sista’s Journey blog, we will have a weekly book discussion here starting next Tuesday.
The Treasure Principle is unique because it discusses the joy of giving. I have always been a giver at heart but this book is rich concerning God’s view of the connection between our faith and the finances that he has entrusted to our care.
Go out and grab the book this weekend. I look forward to discussing Chapter 1 with you on next week.
Do you have any financial resolutions for this year? How will those resolutions benefit the kingdom of God?
