Proverbs 11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
Solomon has noticed a truth played out in real life. He shares this truth with his son. There are people that are givers, the word used here is they scatter-disperse, shower, give every where and yet God increases their goods.
There are others that hold on to more than they need and it only makes them poorer.
Have you learned to honor God with your money? Have you learned to be a giver?
