One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. -Proverbs 11:24
Many people work really hard in order to support their families and most importantly have a comfortable and early retirement.
Me: You work so hard to earn more money now. So what would you do during your retirement?
Workaholics: Spend time with family and friends, perhaps travel to places, here and there.
Me: But I am already doing those things.
The proverb verse presented today is in total contradiction to what the world tells us. Is it better if we had more possessions? How is it that a person gains even more when one gives. What are the gains? What are the losses? What really matters to you at the end of the day? Possessions? Fame? Relationships?
Having the end in mind will help us in making wiser decisions today.
