Giving is progress
"It is more blessed to give than to receive," Jesus says (Acts 20:35). "In the measure and quality you give, the same shall come back to you overflowing" (Lk. 6:38).
This is the very secret of progress. But look at where world economies set their footing, following the human philosophies which turn out to be oppressive structures of the Capitalist or Communist systems. An age-old proverb says: 'Give the best to the world and the best shall come back to you.'
Simple enough is God's philosophy, which can neither deceive nor be mistaken. Try them, that is the only requisite. "Taste and see that the Lord is good" (Ps. 34:9)
