When we have a closed fist on the things we own, we proceed in a covetous spiral downward. But when we see God as the owner of all things and share liberally, we breed a life of significance. Do we not know that all of life and all of what we have is His? Become a Spirit directed giver, well pleasing to the Lord. If you continue to grip, you'll continue to slip, but as you choose to extend you will forever ascend.
