Watch, lest prosperity destroy generosity. (Henry Ward Beecher, 19th century social reformer)

It’s a puzzle, isn’t it? You would think that the more we have, the more generous we would be. But that doesn’t seem to be the way life really is. Have you noticed that even though some people have a lot of this world’s goods, they don’t seem to share a lot? On the other hand, some folks with very little are the most generous, sharing with others in need. Why is that?

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion (2 Corinthians 9:11).
