“One gives freely, yet gains even more. Another withholds unjustly, and comes to poverty” Proverbs 11:24
15th of October: I was reminded of this verse this sunday. It just captures the journey I’ve been on this year.
I’ve learned that there is so much more to gain than good fortune and wealth, by being generous and give freely.
I’ve learned that being generous means getting in control of one’s economic situation (yet to happen). And that getting control of one’s finances does not make one greedy, but able to be free of the grip that money and wealth can have on you, and the ability to give more.
I’ve learned so much, and I still have a lot to learn. I’m not done with this part of my life, and never will. But I guess I needed this year of realising how much control money can have.
And, by the way, I think, only the ones giving freely will understand this verse. I believe the ones that does not practice giving, will never understand the limitations having money enough to buy everything of one’s desire.
And, I think I haven’t completely understood the truth that lies within this verse.
