Givers keep. Keepers lose.

These verses stuck with me from this morning's reading. One from Old Testament passage. The other from the New Testament.

Interesting how seemingly unrelated passages of scripture in a daily reading can parallel each other so strongly...

Proverbs 11:24
One give freely yet grows all the richer; Another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Luke 6:38
Give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.

What we keep we lose. What we give we keep.
