Six Keys of Giving
In session five of the Theology of Money course, Randy Alcorn begins to examine the topic of giving by teaching on six keys of giving, including the following: God owns everything; I’m His money manager. My heart always goes where I put God’s money. Heaven – the New Earth – not Earth under the curse, is my home. I should live not for the dot, but for the line. Giving is the only antidote to materialism. God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving. He concludes the session by drawing the analogy that God’s grace is lightning and our giving is the thunder in response to that grace.
Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching biblical truth and to reaching people in need by supporting those who help the unreached, unfed, unsupported, unborn, unreconciled, and untrained. Before starting EPM in 1990, Alcorn co-pastored the Good Shepherd Community Church outside Gresham, Oregon for fourteen years. Randy is a best-selling author of over 50 books including Courageous; Heaven; The Treasure Principle; and the Gold Medallion winner for fiction, Safely Home. He resides in Gresham, Oregon with his wife, Nanci, and their Golden Retriever, Maggie. The Alcorns have two married daughters, Karina and Angela, and are the proud grandparents of five grandsons.
