Before you can be generous, you have to be thrifty. Generosity happens due to continuous pursuit of increasing income and decreasing expenses.
Thriftiness leads to more savings and more savings lead to more generosity.
The battle is against self-gratifications. The daily war is about having the power to motivating self, creating value, defeating covetousness, mortifying impulses and sustaining satisfaction.
Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling, but a foolish man devours it. -Proverbs 21:20
