The story is told of a farmer who was known for his generous giving & whose friends could not understand how he could give so much & yet remain so prosperous.
One day a spokesman for his friends said: “We cannot understand you. You give far more than any of the rest of us & yet you always seem to have more to give.”
“Oh, that is easy to explain,” the farmer said. “I keep shoveling into God's bin & God keeps shoveling back into mine & God has the bigger shovel.”

Luke 6:38 (ERV): “Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands - more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you.”
“God has a way of giving by the cartloads to those who give away by shovelfuls.” - Charles Spurgeon.
