The Generous Soul Will Be Made Rich

Proverbs 11:24-25  

There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.

God’s way of give can seem paradoxical. How can someone who shares with others have more than someone who hoards what he has?

In the long run, God’s way wins. Those who share will gain more, not just materially, but in their happiness now and especially in their eternal reward.

For more about the way of give, see “Christian Giving.”
