If you’re not willing to give you have no chance to receive. (Jim Pearson, writer)
Here’s Pearson’s example: “Take a quarter—put it in your hand and close it. Can someone take it? No. Can someone give you another quarter? No.” That’s a good illustration of stinginess. A miserly person holds on to what he has, depriving others of the benefit he could offer them. What’s more, his mindset doesn’t allow him to receive what others might offer him.
Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. (Proverbs 11:24)
