The surest & safest way of thriving. Or, A conviction of that grand mistake in many, that what is given to the poor, is a loss to their estate; which is directly contrary as to the experiences of the charitable; so to the testimony of God's spirit in divers places of Scripture: as, Prov. 11. 24. There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; there is that with holdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. Prov. 19. 17. He that hath pitty on the poor, lendeth unto the Lord, and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Luke 6. 38. Give, and it shal be given to you again, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over. Psalm 37. 26. He is ever merciful and lendeth, and his seed is blessed. By Thomas Gouge, minister of the Gospel
