Proverbs of a 38 yr old man

There are some things you save that will rot. It makes no sense to store in abundance things that will spoil quickly. In your selfishness what could have been a blessing to others you spoiled it. Yet there are things you save that will flourish. Yes, give it time and the blessing will be all the more sweeter and more in abundance. It's always a test of the heart either way, isn't it? May the LORD give us wisdom to know what to give and what to save, but no matter what we do, let us glorify God! Hear Paul's heart as he speaks to the Corinthians: Now you should finish what you started. Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving. Give in proportion to what you have. Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. Of course, I don’t mean your giving should make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. I only mean that there should be some equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”
