One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. Proverbs 11:24
In our Christian walks, we experience various stages of generosity. For some, giving freely has never been an issue. For others, like me, giving freely has been a worthwhile and sometimes painful learning experience. I had to learn how to give freely, and as the New Testament translates it, hilariously.
And still there are times that are more difficult than others. Surprisingly, it’s liberating when it’s done with the right motives and not out of guilt. Most of what we do is better that way.
