Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)

Treasure That Lasts: Trading Privilege, Pleasure, and Power for What Really Matters

Michael Youssef

Baker Books, 2020, 240 Pages

Summary

In an age of chasing money and pleasure, we’ve created a culture of envy, emptiness, and depression. Youssef tells us that even the church has bought into worldly values of wealth and status, rather than shining the light of God’s glory on a dying world, and this is what impacts us in missions. Through the life of Moses, Youssef shows how to store up treasure that lasts by living for God’s glory. Moses turned his back on privilege, pleasure, and power to invest in the treasure of God’s glory. The book includes a chapter-by-chapter guide for group discussion or individual study.
