Generosity does not always appear in the form of money. There are other ways to be generous...such as...with your time and with your talent. Sometimes being generous could be really listening to someone when they are going through a rough spot in their life. In my previous post I spoke about the character of responsibility, but one of the focal points that I wrote about was how a lady took the time out of her busy day to follow the leading of God in her life and spend some QUALITY listening time with me. Her generosity was amazing and I will forever be changed because of her. If she had not spent that time with me, I just don't know how much longer it would have taken me to "come around" and get better. But she did, and I am!
In thinking about what to write in today's post, I came across this picture about "real generosity" and believe it to be pretty profound. Being willing to do something nice for someone anonymously should be a real joy for people. So often so many want that "joy" for the moment and will take away their reward by being all blabby. (is that a word?) Their being generous does not go unnoticed, because they make sure the right people know that "they" are the person that blessed "so n so". How much sweeter the joy and reward when you see a need and fill it, no questions asked. Totally out of the goodness and love in your heart you help...and only you and God know. Pretty awesome, huh?
The thing about it is....what you do for others, God will make sure it comes back to you. God gives good gifts to those that love Him and seek Him. Be generous and generosity will come back to you...it's just the way it is! Try it!
