Bible Reading from Proverbs 30:15

Proverbs 30:15a

The leech has two daughters: Give and Give. (ESV)

In my daily Bible reading, I came across this proverb of Agur. Some of the Proverbs are profound for opening up deep things to us. Some are profound for putting the obvious in front us and daring us to see it. Those who constantly cry for others to give are leeches. “Check your privilege”, “give more to the poor”, “give more to the children”, “give more, give, give, give”. The social justice leech is never satisfied.

It is Christ who has the right to tell you to give, because He first gave you life and breath and everything.
