A Word To The Wise

The people will curse him who withholds grain, But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it (Proverbs 11:26, NKJV). Clearly this pertains with sustaining life with more than just one person. Yet, is there an application to the local church? I think there is. We might desire to have a “rainy-day” fund, but if the Lord money is used for a rainy-day and the rainy day never comes, what good work (or works) was sacrificed to a day that never came? We don’t want to minimize the need for a reserve, but just exactly what do we need to reserve? RT
