Proverbs 11:24


Proverbs 11:24 One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.




Hockey Chat:  In the 95-96 season of the Florida Panthers, there was one thing truly amazing about the team that out scored their opposition night after night.  Not one of their goal scores were in the top five in the league.  Actually not even the top ten.  You’d have to look deep into the 20’s to find the names of the Panther players.  The reason for this was clear.  It was the reason that one person had a personal record year.  Róbert Švehla had a career high of 53 point, which 49 of those were assists…. And he was a defenseman!  That team’s passing to each other helped them pass the opposition all the way to the finals.


Life Lesson:  We’ve heard the old saying “it’s better to give than to receive”, but life tries to tell us differently.  The world tries to tell us to horde and hold.  You’ll never know what can truly be gained by hold what you have.  There is a freedom and spirit in a generous life that a miser will never know.  Chirst gave his life for us so that we to can understand by his example that there is a peace in giving and a return of so much more.
