    Randy Alcorn on:    

Whenever I see an unmarried woman carrying a child, my first response is one of respect. I know she could have taken the quick fix without anyone knowing, but she chose instead to let an innocent child live.

    Topics: Abortion

The prochoice position always overlooks the victim's right to choose. The women don't choose rape. The blacks didn't choose slavery. The Jews didn't choose the ovens. And the babies don't choose abortion.

    Topics: Abortion

Don't forget that the most effective form of child abuse is giving a child everything they want.

    Topics: Children

Your children should love the Lord, work hard, and experience the joy of trusting God. More important than leaving your children an inheritance is leaving them a spiritual heritage. If you left your children money they didn't need, and if they were thinking correctly, wouldn't they give it to God anyway? Then why not give it to God yourself, since He entrusted it to you?

Truth-oriented Christians love studying Scripture and theology. But sometimes they're quick to judge and slow to forgive. They're strong on truth, weak on grace.

    Topics: Christians, Theology

Many [Western Christians] habitually think and act as if there is no eternity. We major in the momentary and minor in the momentous.

    Topics: Christians

When you leave this world, will you be known as one who accumulated treasures on earth that you couldn't keep? Or will you be recognized as one who invested treasures in heaven that you couldn't lose?

    Topics: Death, Finances

You may think, No problem there. I'm putting my church and ministries in my will. By all means, do your estate planning and give heavily to God's kingdom. But what kind of trust does it take to part with your money once you die? You don't have any choice! Death isn't your best opportunity to give; it's the end of your opportunity to give. God rewards acts of faith done while we're still living.

    Topics: Death, Finances, Rewards

But isn't it wrong to be motivated by reward? No, it isn't. If it were wrong, Christ wouldn't offer it to us as a motivation. Reward is His idea, not ours.

God doesn't look at just what we give. He also looks at what we keep.

    Topics: Finances, Giving

He who lays up treasures on earth spends his life backing away from his treasures. To him, death is loss. He who lays up treasures in heaven looks forward to eternity; he's moving daily toward his treasures. To him, death is gain. He who spends his life moving toward his treasures has reason to rejoice. Are you despairing or rejoicing?

    Topics: Finances, Eternity
    Source: The Treasure Principle

Many Christians dread the thought of leaving this world. Why? Because so many have stored up their treasures on earth, not in heaven. Each day brings us closer to death. If your treasures are on earth, that means each day brings you closer to losing your treasures.
