Then there were seasons of abundance. Years that we squandered wealth (yes, even after living so frugal) and years that we gave generously to others. It's amazing how maturing in Christ can affect your priorities in financial giving, whether it's through a tithe to your church or an offering to missions or non-profit organization.
I wish we had paid attention to the Proverbs more. There's such wisdom and insight to working, living, and giving within these verses.
