An excerpt from The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn.
From Chapter 1 Buried Treasure: The Treasure Principle
“You can't take it with you--But you can send it on ahead."
If we give instead of keep, if we invest in the eternal instead of in the temporal, we store up treasures in heaven that will never stop paying dividends. Whatever treasures we store up on earth will be left behind when we leave. Whatever treasures we store up in heaven will be waiting for us when we arrive.
You can't take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.
It's a revolutionary concept. If you embrace it, I guarantee it will change your life. As you store up heavenly treasures, you'll gain an everlasting version of what that man found in the treasure hidden in the field.
