plant in handsSomehow we tend to think that generosity is all about money … sometimes it is, but mostly it’s about our life and our way of living..

Proverbs 11: 24-25:

The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped

We can be generous or stingy in our time, our attitudes our concern for others etc.

I think if we hold a generous heart toward others, then whether it is talk, thoughts, time or appreciation … we purpose to live a generous life … the principle of being generous is that a generous person’s life is large and effective, but a person who hold back in appreciation, kindness and love has a pinched life … a life that is nit-picking, critical and narrow .

Oh how wonderful it is when we believe the best of another. When our talk of them is generous and kind.

What is the point of being stingy in our praise and appreciation of another? Each one is a valuable person… problems, issues “warts an’ all”!

As we begin to be generous in our watering kindness on another’s life – our world grows bigger and we are blessed.

My prayer this week is that we would be the instigators of generosity toward others – instead of waiting for others to be generous to us!
