Miserliness Leads to Poverty

(A certain scholar, who approached a king for patronage, had this to say): One goes to hell due to one’s sins.  Those who commit sins do so because they are poor.  Poverty is the lot of those who have not been generous in their lives.  Therefore, O king, be liberal in giving!
