Why do people who has plenty become so stingy to give?
You discover that those that struggle to give are people who believe that if they give, God will bless them in return, but why the rich restrict or afraid of giving, so that they can gather more. Is that a good reason?
Yes, generosity and stinginess are two elements of personality that don't relate to how rich or poor a person is. Someone who is very poor can be extremely generous, and someone who is very rich can easily be a very stingy person.
Usually there are deep insecurities or other beliefs around money that are regulating their behavior. If you determine what constructs their perceptions on money, you'll gain more insight into why they behave the way they do.
William Feather once said "The petty economies of the rich are just as amazing as the silly extravagances of the poor." - how true! The fact is often that they are not stingy because they are rich - they are rich because they are stingy. Saving every penny is exactly how they became rich in the first place.
But let's not generalise- many rich people give extremely generously and are very aware of the important world issues like poverty and sickness.
They are not stingy. Success is a long trip. These people worked hard and sacrificed to be what they are today. I believe that the have nots should help themselves and not to look for handouts! The rich were not put on earth to support and help poorer people! Thank you.
Giving behavior is inculcated one. you can't force people to do what doesn't come from within. there is no question of rich and poor in this matter .
