Hurt is reduced by being shared; joy is increased by being shared. (Phillips & Brown, worldview authors)

It is difficult for most children to learn how to share. “That’s mine!” is often the cry when another child wants the toy. Too many adults have not yet learned the value of sharing; on the contrary, hoarding seems to be a widespread problem these days. But as Phillips and Brown suggest, there is great value in learning to share. Good friends experience it with great benefit.

Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. (1 Timothy 6:18)
