Hatred of capitalism is, in large part, a hangover of Marxist influence. This verse is not as true as it once was.

People will curse the one who withholds grain, but they will praise the one who sells it.
Proverbs 11.26 NET

Today, people want you to give them the grain. They think they have a right to get it for free. But selling a needed product for a fair price is a blessed act. Refusing to engage in good business practice earns the people’s condemnation. Generosity is not only giving things away, but engaging in honest, positive business as well, Proverbs 11.24-26.

  1. Amen! Twisted view, our society has, on a lot of things. Especially, when it comes to free “stuff.”
