What is the most important point about stewardship you want people to know?

Question from a reader:

Of all you've written about stewardship, what's the single most important point you'd want people to grasp about why they should be generous stewards for the kingdom?

Answer from Randy Alcorn:

Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” The more we invest in the things that matter to God and the more we follow Christ’s command to lay up treasures in Heaven rather than on earth, the more our hearts are drawn to Him. The person who puts his treasures into God’s hands demonstrates love for God and others. Since his heart will follow his treasures, it’s not just the lives of the needy changed by his giving, it’s his own.
