Use of food (Sir 31:23-31:24)

“People bless

The one who is liberal

With food.

Their testimony

To his generosity

Is trustworthy.

The city complains about

The one who is stingy

With food.

Their testimony

To his stinginess

Is accurate.”

Sirach believes that how you use food is important. If you are liberal with your food, you will be blessed with trustworthy testimonies to your generosity. However, if you are stingy with your food, the city will accurately complain about it.
