Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 13:8

Discussion for Proverbs 13:8

  • Mukayira edwick on Proverbs 13:8
    In order for you to be sucessful in life, giving has to become a culture.what you give you do not lack. But the poor heareth but not rebuke,meaning they are too cautious,so they play it safe with their finances. Leading them into more misery. Hoarders are broke people but constant giving paves way for more riches to come your way.
