Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
Your natural instinct is to hoard everything, just in case you might need a little extra some day. The problem is the more you store in surplus the more bigger you will have to build your barns. Causing much of it to spoil and rotten not just in the physical sense helping others, but in your heart and mind as well. You will always want just a little more, and when is it ever enough? God provides us with resources beyond our needs all the time. We must ask The Lord to give us a generous and humble eye so we can see what is a need and what is a want. The evil eye is stingy and hoards beyond moral capacity. God gives us resources and expects us to trust him when we give them away. Generosity has a way of coming back to you. By being generous to those in need you've made a spiritual investment where moth and rust cannot destroy. The spiritual interest gained by lending to the poor in the name of the Lord Jesus is thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as has been planted! Trust in God's wisdom, He will lead you too much investment and opportunity for His Kingdom . As you learn to be content avoiding gluttony, and then giving God of your surplus you will see your stock will never run dry.
