Prov 11:24“The tight-fisted man ends up poorer and the open-handed man richer.”
“Scatter” - PAZAR, פָּזַרThe act of scattering widely, loosely, liberally or freely.
Giving generously according to your means, faith resting in God to provide for you, even though you are giving generously and depleting your own supply.
“Increases all the more.” YASAPH, יָסַףThe ability to continue to do something and be able to do it again and again.
It is the quantity that you will be given when you give generously to others.Cf. Prov 1:5; 3:2; 9:9, 11; 10:22, 27.
When you do not faith rest in God it results in you holding back what you should actually be giving away.
“What is justly due” MIN, מִן YOSHER, ישֶׁר“Straightness, uprightness, or equity.”
The type of giving the believer should practice, which is not being practiced by this reversionistic believer.
“Results only in want”AHK MACHSOR, מַחְסוֹר, “Want, need, lack or poverty.” To live in a constant state of need, Prov 6:11; 11:24; 14:23; 21:5; 28:27.
Deut. 15:7f, “If there is among you a poor person... you shall not harden your heart... but you shall open your hand to him, and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.”
If you do not help those in need when you have the means to do so, you will become like them.Cf. 2 Cor 9:6-8
“A man there was, though some did count him mad, the more he cast away, the more he had.”
“A man there was, though some did count him mad, the more he cast away, the more he had.” “He that bestows his goods upon the poor shall have as much again, and ten times more.” (John Bunyan, “The Pilgrim’s Progress”)
Principle: Sowing seed is done at the beginning of the season, so give before the need arises.
Prov 11:25“The generous man” NEPHESH, “soul” BERAKAH, “blessing.” “The soul of blessing” = the one who is a giver.
The blessing to the giver =“He will be prosperous”,DASHEN, דָּשֵׁן, “To be made to become fat.”
To be “fattened” connotes wealth, abundance, full satisfaction, and health, Cf. Deut 31:20 with Prov 13:4; 15:30; 28:25
The believer who gives generously while faith resting in God will himself be generously given to by the Lord; in this life.
“Fatness” is speaking about the quality of our reciprocated blessings.
