Give freely and become more wealthy,
be stingy and lose everything.
It's hard to wrap our minds around giving makes us more wealthy.
In worldly ideals, it doesn't.
But we aren't talking worldly. We are talking godly.
If you freely give, you have a generious heart. You pass that down to your kids. Your generousity can help the poor, the needy, the homeless, the church.
You can sponser a child...
You can give to charity...
You can invest in the future by letting your kids see how it is to give....
If you don't. If you just hold the money in like a child who won't let anyone play with his/her toys (just hoards them and doesn't play for fear someone will take their toys), you will lose it.
You can't take it to Heaven with you anyway-- why not sow it where it can do some good.
God Bless You,
