Daily Proverb

Proverbs 11 on giving:

24 Give freely and become more wealthy;
be stingy and lose everything.

25 The generous will prosper;
those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

Note that it says to give freely, that is without expectation of results or favours.

I have a good friend who is the most generous person I know, he gives freely of his time, his money and his advice. He seems to me to be the living embodiment of this proverb. He is certainly very wealthy and if you ask him he says it is because he gives.

He is not the only person ?know who subscribes to this?philosophy, and each of them is independently wealthy and they all attribute it to giving freely. In fact two of them say that?the?more they give the more they seem to receive, with one going so far as to say that when he hasn’t given freely, or been parsimonious in giving it has cost him money.
