Quick book review

Ever heard the quote.. "Every thing I ever needed to know I learnt in Sunday School"? Well , that's what I thought of when I read this book.

Here is a quick summary of what I got from the book...

- God gives you wealth and the ability to enjoy it

- We are in a raging battle against the forces of evil, and Satan uses money to distract christians and make them ineffective for the kingdom

- Don't make money a god. God is your only true source of security. Money gives a false sense of security.

- Giving money to God's purposes sets your heart on true riches: heaven. There is a direct link to where your treasure is and where your heart is. The bible doesn't say, where your time, how much you read your bible or how much you pray determines where your heart is, but "where your treasure is, there your heart will be".

Back to basics huh? The bible is true, and we need to put it into practice. We will be judged on these things, but God wants us to pass the test... that's why He's given us the question in advance!
