Generosity

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word generosity? 

Most say giving, usually referring to money. 

The Lad says it means giving of compassion and also stuff.  It spreads out in so many ways, it is hard to describe. 

I thought he summed it up fairly well.  I also like to say it is the act of giving or sharing in ABUNDANCE and without HESITATION. 

I like that “without hesitation” part. 

I prefer to live a life of liberal giving of myself, my time, and my resources.   Charitable also comes to mind but I find that word to lack what I desire in being generous.  Unsparing.  Unselfish.  Bounteous. 

May my children live a life lavishing the blessings in their own lives (CHRIST) on others.  What that will look like is unknown to me but it is the heart of the matter. 

Hospitable.

Good-hearted.

Open-hearted.

Magnanimous! 

1 Timothy 5:18-19

18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
