Sacred Trust

The Treasure Principle

Sacred Trust is the giving campaign at my church Newport Mesa. It is basically modelled off of a book called The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn

Some cool things that are implications that follow from Christian theology as mentioned in both of these venues (and a reminder that ideas have consequences):

  • God owns everything! We are simply managers or stewards of what he has entrusted us with
  • My heart always goes where I put God's money
  • Give with an eternal perspective in mind, not just an earthly one
  • Giving is the only antidote to materialism
  • God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.

I especially love the last two points. Orange County are you listening!
